I will have to face up to the deck on TIH in the near future.  The smooth parts will probably be Awlgrip which I will contract out as its too much voodoo for me.   The non skid parts I will probably do in KIWIGRIP.  I bought two quarts of it some time ago and always planned to do a test run, which the company recommends.  The top floor of my cockpit locker proved an ideal opportunity.

I am pleased with the results and ease of application.  Search kiwigrip on YouTube for advice.

Arch dry fit..........

Wow, pretty close for an eBay purchase.

Cockpit Locker 2.....

Second level in.

Dry fit.  The marine ply has now been epoxied.

Storage buckets.  I try to make all my lockers "mess proof".  That almost never works, but it can delay the interval when I have to pull everything out and re-stow.  To this end I will fill the locker with 12 plastic buckets to hold lines, cleaning gear and all the other junk that goes into a cockpit locker.

Cockpit Locker....

I haven't been totally idle over the  Christmas, but I came close.  Managed to finish the port water tank and put a lid on it.  This will be part of a double floor in the large locker accessible from the cockpit.
