Interior details.

The last few pages are sorted by subject, instead of date. The work was done in July, August, and early September.

A bar sink was installed in the galley, and a faucet was installed in the head. I don't have hot running water, so I just connected the cold water line to both faucets. A pressure water pump was installed under the head counter, with a switch to turn it off when not in use.

An ice box with four inches of insulation is under the galley counter just aft of the stove space.

A fold-out garbage bin is across from the galley, which consists of a plastic garbage can screwed onto the inside of a door.

There is a sliding door under the dorade vent beneath the solar panels.

The table folds out onto sliding supports.

The Sun-Mar composting toilet came with a 12V exhaust vent that was much too loud, I replaced it with a Vetus 12V ventilator, which is much better. Under the box to the right is a diaphram hand pump connected to the toilet to pump out any excess liquid into another container, to be disposed of properly.

The windows are held open at a 45 degree angle with a bent brass rod stuck in a hole in the window sill.
