Bandit's Big Refit - Part 12: Continuing Onwards

Today we've been busy lining the first few bulkheads in the white wood that we'd selected for the refit of Bandit. We had already purchased and fitted the doors in this wood but waited for a while to purchase the separate veneer for the bulkheads until we were sure we liked the look of it.

We ordered a 1.5m(L) by 3m(H) roll of this white wood veneer and started to complete a few of the areas inside the cabin. Overall, we got three bits of the bulkheads done today and we're very happy with how it looks so far. It's already starting to brighten up the interior or the boat and it just feels so much fresher and modern compared to the darker oak.

We'll continue onwards with the task until all the bulkheads are complete. We are also playing with the idea of having synthetic teak laid down on the cabin stairs leading from the cockpit as we'll need to remove these to gain access to the full length of the bulkheads. The steps themselves are in alright condition but we think that having the same TekDek teak flooring on the steps would suit the cockpit flooring better. We'll have to see.

The singular roll of 1.5m x 3m veneer was around £80 and we're going to need a couple more rolls, going by pure judgement. Not a cheap project but it'll be worth it in the long run.

The bulkheads so far...
