Re: Midships 25 Hull number 65 shall rise again

The Pieces are coming together.

Here figuring out the NMEA 183 connections between the Radio AIS and the Chart plotter. Of course the wires are color coded! and of course the color codes are different between manufactures.
That is why nobody calls it a standard, instead they call it %#$&@!.

It does work on the table now. Two Raymarine chart plotters with WiFi link to a tablet, and New Horizon Radio.


But things are coming together.

Re: Midships 25 Hull number 65 shall rise again

Ongoing projects. Seems like every task requires drilling or cutting a hole in the boat.

Locker vents. non-vented lockers were always evil lairs for dank stuff.


Next on the list. Kitchen counter-top replacement, plus Stove and SS sink.

In the beginning the earth was covered in water, and so was this MS25.
It pretty well rotted out all the wooden bits, and bubbled or stained the fiberglass.


Cleaned up and ignoring the blistered surface.


Add a kero-camp stove and the kitchen gives good service. The low counter-top height allowed for a tall stove like this without any issues.
Might even have been better for trips, since we stored a lot of stuff behind the stove, and could also shift it out of the way for more countertop work-space.


On Lake Superior, a cutting board doubled our work space, while the stove stored the two most common cooking items in pot-holders.
Really pretty happy with this arrangement and would recommend something like it for other MS-25 boats lacking a fancy cooker.

Omni-stove, but really looking at the space behind the stove where we could just toss things and know they would stay there during a passage. (stove as screwed down at this point)

Re: Midships 25 Hull number 65 shall rise again

Lets tell the next part of the story in pictures.



Then




How think it your boat's kitchen counter?



The new counter-top will be a 1/2 inch base, with several layers of biaxial glass underneath, a biaxial layer on top with a map, and epoxy barrier as finish.
Preparation complete


Pouring in the epoxy. It takes a lot more than you think!


Removing the bubbles, using a heat gun or propane torch. Easy does it.
