Bird's eye view...
Fuel manifold

One portion of the fuel distribution system. From this point we can choose which tank is used to supply fuel to the motors, and we can use the fuel transfer pump at the bottom of the photo to circulate fuel through the Racor fuel filter/separators.

A photo of one of the bilges in the saloon. Note the high level bilge alarm float switch, the large diameter bilge pump hoses and the insulated heating system pipes

Aft berth systems

The space underneath the aft berth has been allocated largely to electrical, electronic, hydraulic and plumbing systems. The large white boxes will contain the house batteries. The small stainless steel tank in the transom cavity behind the berth is the cabin heater header tank (the heater itself is contained in the sealed locker to the left of the berth). The main fuse board can be seen to the aft of the battery box.

A closer shot of the main DC fuse board.

Forward sole

With the systems installed we have started to complete the interior sanding and coating. The surfaces to be varnished will be first sealed with Everdure epoxy primer, and in most cases may not be finish varnished until after the bulkheads have been finish painted. Here the cabin sole in the forward cabin has been sanded and Everdured.

The saloon sole has also been sanded and Everdured.
