We’re surrounded by big bulkheads, and now it’s time to get the first one glassed in to the bridge deck.

We do a little jumping around in this episode, giving features to three of our biggest bulkheads. Matt does a quick explanation of #6, which will lead into our cockpit, before we give the grand tour of how things are laid out in our galley and salon – now that we have it all marked on the floor. πŸ™‚

And after some trimming of bulkhead 4 to get it to fit into place *just right* we spend an afternoon adding the coves and fiberglass to permanently bond it to the deck.

Oh, and Georgie even makes a cute cameo at the end!

Tune in to see how things are shaping up!

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from Annapolis!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
