Here are few more build photo’s from the past month. I have been working toward finishing the interior of “Alice Gale” for months now. I think she will be on the trailer within a few weeks.
A fresh coat of UV sealer
The bronze fairleads that I purchased from Classic Marine did not match up cleanly with my round oak rub rail so I needed to fair the rail to fit the fairlead.
Fitting the Fairlead
Rub-rail trimmed to match fairlead shape.
With the canvas deck cover I need to protect the area of the mast partner. This area will have a few holes drilled for belaying pins, so I cut out a cover from oak. This will match the color of the gunwale rub-rail when varnished. Also shown in these photo’s is the forward deck trim.

A bit of fairing and filler and it's done
I made my locker door handles out out extra mahogany stock.

I also added a few new low cost power tools to ease the final building details.
