Spray foam to firm up floor, adds flotation.

I have finally gotten around to filling open air voids with water resistant rigid spray foam made by Dow (12 oz can).  I ended up using three cans.
Using a drill bit the same size as the spray nozzle, I drilled a hole behind the latter area and two holes in the area of the compression post.  Put a piece of tape on your drill bit so you won't drill deeper than 1/8 inch, to prevent drilling into the outer hall.  Tap the floor with your knuckles to find the greatest cavity sound to drill into.

Moving ladder increases cabin space

Cabin ladder

I have discovered that by mounting the cabin ladder off-center towards the starboard side increases the space for the Portside. This makes dressing and moving around so much easier.  And since I have modified my port side to a generous captains bed and seating area, it makes getting up easier also.
Another benefit is easier access to storage behind the ladder area.
