We've made good progress on the galley makeover. The fridge cool box and other new lockers are now painted. The condenser unit is mounted in the cockpit locker and the thermostat controller is mounted in the locker outboard of the cool box.
Cutting out the holes in the single piece of Laminex Aquapanel was a little scary. On the aft side it is only about 30mm wide. Happily it didn't fracture and it is now glued in place.

The worktops were masked around the three lockers and painting commenced. Three coats of Norglass Shipshape Primer/Undercoat followed by three of Norglass Northane Gloss. This was over the existing several coats of Norglass Epoxy Resin. The gloss is very glossy!
|Not forgetting the forward worktop locker!|

With the painting of the boxes finished we can finish the shaping of the three locker lids to fit, and paint them. Next week we will also be fitting the evaporator plate in the cool box and connecting everything. This will be done with help from John of Bluewater Marine Refrigeration.
