V - Berth

The V-berth is coming along nicely.
We cut Jatoba planks and used a thickness planer to clean them up and get them to a uniform size.
They were sanded up to 320 grit disks then several coats of Poly Wipe was applied, sanding with 600 grit every three coats thereafter. We have all but the little pieces installed now. They were screwed into place without any compound so that they can be easily removed to access the wiring and plumbing behind when required.
A fresh coat of paint was applied to the berth and the hatches were installed.

Thank you!
It was one of the most satisfying parts of the project to do.
