I meant to post this earlier but a lot of work has gone into the boat lately. Also with work being nuts as it is I haven’t really had any decent time to sit down and finish the load of 1/2 finished blog posts I have stashed away (most notably the next day in the article series on my trip from Eastport to Toronto). Anyways here’s a photo of the boat cargo hold before:
And here’s the after pregrouting
And here’s a series of the tiled cargo hold from in the cargo hold looking in various directions.
The lighter area is where the master bath is going to go. In there will be a largish stand-up shower, the incredible electric toilet and the vanity. My sister had some neat ideas about what to do for lighting in there along the lines of a large LED Shoji screen Plexiglas wall. I think I may have to do this with RGB LED arrays so I can do funky effects on the wall itself (ie Sun Rises, Sun sets etc).
Also note the total absence of stairs. The spiral staircase is dead and gone! HUZZAH! As awesome as spiral staircases are in theory they’re quite terrible in practice unless the steps are over 2′ wide each and at that size you might as well just go with a standard kite winder stairway. We put in a stainless steel straight staircase which you can’t see since it had to be lifted out of the way for the tiling.
I’ll post more photos of the progress at the end of this weekend since more painting on the exterior and more interior stuff will be removed by then.
