SM aft cabin vanity

john martin <symoondog@...>

Two photos are posted now in our Moon Dog folder, I guess we forgot to post them before. The camera flash makes it appear that the new section is much lighter than the rest of the paneling. In reality it matches quite well, except we never got around to staining the oak trim edging (around each new cabinet door) to match the Amel doors. A project for another day...
Regards, John

I bought one a year ago and have not had to clean the side of the boat since. I don't know how it works, butyou just install it and forget about it, absolutely no maintenance. The best $170 I ever spent !I also want to offer a belated response to emails some time ago about the aft cabin vanity. We never used the vanity and it occupies a lot of volume so we decided to make a cabinet out of it. See photos on this site in our folder "Moon Dog". The little seat removes very easily (and can be reinstalled easily as well). We put one shelf inside, made of 16" deep household variety plastic coated wire shelving) that rests on the conduit ridge molded into the hull and is screwed to the existing bulkheads. The cabinet front is just a pices of varnished mahogany plywood, with 2 doors similar in style to the Amel doors (although we need to stain the edging dark to match the rest of the boat). We left the carpet in and the cabinet front is screwed in on each side through the existing bulkheads. All our "improvements" can be easily removed if needed. My wife loves it as it is alarge cabinet that can hold bulky items such as linens, blankets, and many, many pairs of shoes as well.We also installed some very simple "book bars" in the cabin "cubbyholes". We got tired of all the books dumping out whenever we had a somewhat rolly passage !
