Time for part two of the companionway renovation! If you want to read part one, click HERE. After adding wood putty and sanding the companionway door several times it was time to put it together. First up was the frame, it is made of stainless steel and it was Anne-Mon’s previous owner that had made this. It is a well made frame so it is really nice to save some time and money.
It feels really nice to have a proper door, but it is not completely finished. We are still missing a part for the handle, which we have ordered and should be arriving soon. We will also varnish the door, but there’s no rush. The linseed oil needs 14 days to harden and wood is protected by the oil.
Just for fun, here’s a picture of the old door we had. Just a piece of plywood with some insulation on it.
Another thing we did was to change the plexiglass for the engine instruments seen from the cockpit.
Next up will be a post about our propane installation, which we have been working with in parallel to the cabin door and a bunch of other things. We are preparing Anne-Mon so that we can take a couple of days to go sailing in the Stockholm archipelago, hopefully we will be off sailing in a couple of days.
