Chicory's Master Stateroom Refit
This picture shows how the master stateroom looked prior to the start of our refit.
The start of demolition. We wanted a king-size bed with storage underneath so the bed-side cabinet and drawers needed to be eliminated.
Once the structures were removed the updating of the wiring and plumbing could begin.
The hydraulic hoses for the stabilizers and the remaining plumbing and electrical runs were suspended from the ceiling to prepare for painting the floor.
Bilge Coat paint was applied to the fiberglass.
The frame for the new king-size bed was constructed out of 4X4's so it could support the hinging of the platform.
Wiring and plumbing starting to be re-installed. Notice the 5000 BTU air conditioning unit next to the bed. This was installed to run off the battery bank using the inverters.
Hinged bed platform in place.
The start of "wrapping" the base frame in teak.
This shows the enclosure for the 5000 BTU air conditioning and the duct work built into the wall using 2X2's.
The plywood panels on the air conditioning enclosure wrapped in ultra-leather.
The wall panel covering the duct work also wrapped in ultra-leather.
This shows the dry-fitting of the 1/4 inch PVC panels that are wrapped in foam and ultra-leather. The space between the panels is provided to accommodate the thickness of the material when wrapping the individual sections.
This is how the panels look once wrapped in ultra-leather and installed.
This shows the first step to finishing the aft facing wall. The bright white section is the 1/4 inch PVC.
This is the PVC panel being prepped for wrapping in the foam and ultra-leather.
Here is the panel wrapped and ready to be installed.
The bed base is wrapped in teak with the baseboard and trim in place in preparation for a polyurethane finish.
This picture shows the stateroom with wall panels in place and the ceiling panels being test fitted.
This picture shows the 1,000 pound linear actuator that raises the mattress platform. You can see the water-maker, the stabilizers, and NMEA 2000 network junction in this photo.
