I jumped into the V-berth and got all of the headliner track mounting pieces installed all around the perimeter. I also got the Kai LED mounting panels installed and the wiring hooked up. It's not glamorous, but getting this step done is the second to the last thing I have to do before the headliner tracks can be installed. Progress. Booya.

Looks good. Can't wait to see it finished. With just the finished wood work, it looks rich. Steady as she goes.

Thanks guys!

I got the framing for the slider screen for the V-berth hatch installed at just the right height. I'll use that fuzzy stuff (can't think of the name of the product) to seal the screen frame to the headliner so bugs can't get in when the hatch is open. I just have to finish cleaning up some wiring and I'm ready for the headliner installer to come out and put in more track.

Progress.

The Whisper Wall headliner installer showed up over the weekend and got the tracks installed in the V-berth. This is funky stuff, but the guy's got skills. This is going to look great when it's all installed!

I don't want to hold up the headliner installation, but I had to get the base coat of varnish on the V-berth/galley bulkhead since the headliner will butt up against it on the V-berth side. Six coats of ICA base clear later, it looks pretty good.

Thanks!
That ICA is funky stuff. It doesn't roll and tip very well, though I suspect the heat had something to do with that. By the time I was wrapping up, the brush was getting hard and the material was balling up on the bristles!
But sanded flat and with the top coat sprayed, it should look pretty good.

I've been working to get the living spaces ready for the headliner installation for several months now. Over the weekend, the headliner installer came out. We broke open the Whisper Wall box, and he got busy. I have to say, it's turning out very nicely.

If you were wondering how that ugly track in the complex corner of the V-berth was going to turn out...

Thanks guys! But wait! There's more!

I'm working on some things in the V-berth, so the headliner installer got busy in the aft stateroom. He got three panels installed, then I went through and installed the Kai LED lights. This is looking really good!

The trim ring for the aft stateroom hatch hole is looking great! Chris Craft used aluminum molding, which had some corrosion coming through the anodizing. I decided to go with mahogany.
