Aft Cabin Drops

31 May 2014
This little project was finished a while ago. It as the foot of our bed in the aft cabin. The one photo shows the insulation covering what is our Lazarette. I used old scraps so not to waste. There is a space between that foam and the actual position of the wall, so we filled it with a couple drops for storing random little things that don't have anywhere else to go.
The whole this is epoxied together so no screws. That why there is boat hooks and clamps holding the one side in and the other being pulled by ratchet straps.
In the house J and I both have little spots were we keep silly little thing.... these will eventually be their home. If you wonder what the white pipe is going through the bottom is... its a conduit for our throttle control which passes under the bed and straight to the engine.
