More rot but not surprised. All the stringer on top of the fuel tank were shot. Two are in place. 2x4 cedar cut down to proper height, ends soaked in epoxy then bedded into a mixture of thicken epoxy with 406.

The section below the oven is shot. Looks like the port light leaked for some time. Will deal with that at another time.

Stringers epoxy in-place. Floor boards screwed down except access to fuel gauge.

Today I cut out and recessed the C-head. Will trim around cut if I am ever allowed a trip to Anchorage. COVID-19 has made getting certain supplies a pain.

GAt some point soon you need to create a thread titled "and it ends"
cause you are just jamming along. You said your stingers are cedar. Did you epoxy coat the whole length or are you relying on the natural rot resistance? Mine are fir and are obviously fully encased.

Nice work!

I epoxy 1-ft either end for now. Guess I could pull the floor boards and hit the rest of it at another time if needed.

Next summer - new title (post). "Installation New Sails - New Rigging" .

And - "Exterior Projects "

As for this current thread - winter is a few months out so things will slow down towards the end of September.

Electrical update - old versus new. 12-volt shown. Still have various circuits to run before cleaning up the wires.

120 system. Kept it simple. A circuit for the following: Port outlets, Starboard outlets, and battery charger.

Disconnected the water heater since we will not use it.

Sorry for the lack of updates. I was recently diagnosed with a medical issue that had me on some pretty crappy medication. Out of it for 3-weeks. Had to stop the meds due to the side effects and am slowly getting back to things.

1. A new Dickinson P-12000 was installed except I could not get the actual propane hose yet. I will add a few photos here.
2. Winter is coming for us. Snow on the mountains so I am refocusing my efforts to winterizing the boat. Will work on projects throughout the winter yet I also have to refocus on some medical issue.

Will post more photos soon.
