More cockpit

Three more panels fitted today.  Cut outs and fillings for the bilge pump on the front port panel. This is quite time consuming work, but I think it should be possible to start fitting the second floor layer tomorrow.  I have considered painting the inside of the under seat compartments before fitting the tops, but if I'm able to tape in there I will be able to paint as well.  Just a fast fairing before closing off I guess.

And the area for the flush mounted bilge pump.

I thought the same thing ('I can paint it later, so why do it now') - and regretted it.
Do all the painting you can while the compartiments are still open and easily accessible. It will save you a bit of time and a lot of painting in uncomfortable positions.

OK, Menno, I had success following your advice the last time, so will probably do it again:-)
