With the main cabin having
about seven foot headroom as well as the cabin top doing some flexing like
the foredeck, I decided to install some support panels. These lowered the
headroom to about 6' 2" and added tremendous strength to the cabin top.
|Once these supports are
installed and glassed in place, the space will be used for storing the
companion way doors, drop boards and bug screens. It will also allow for
about 3 inches of insulation.
I will also be installing some
"Hershoff" style hatches in the cabin top.
