Hunter 54 update two...

It's been a while since the last update so I thought to let you guys see what's up with the boat.

The interior is starting to go back together after all of the pieces were cut, including three bulkheads and the port and starboard salon parts (all of them).



Here are a few shots:



Aft head







Nav area







Aft berth bulkhead







Aft bulkhead (no flash)







Forward berth







Starboard settee shelving (not trimmed yet)







Forward salon bulkhead portside (not stained yet)







Then there's the deck



Here's some core work shots







Fresh core and glass







More core work







Foredeck







Hull (needs fairing yet)







This is the system I used to maintain the camber of the housetop







and







That's it for now. More next time.

So how are you liking the FG work compared to the wood? And how are you finding the boat to be built (quality-wise) as you strip her down?

The H-54 was built fairly well, a bit light but not too shabby. The glass work isn't bad, except the grinding. We've had to do a ton of wood work in this boat on the interior. We basically rebuilt it, except may 40% of the bulkheads.
