engine bulkheads

Peeking out behind that bulkhead under the green tarp is a brand new Yanmar 3YM-20 diesel engine with saildrive and folding propellers.  In this installation, the beds for the two aft cabins are built over the engines.  I've applied the first coats of white epoxy paint in what will become the engine compartments so any oil or fluid leaks will be easy to spot.

For quick oil level checks, access to the engine will be from a front bulkhead mounted hatch. Also, a top lift out hatch will allow entry to the engine compartment by qualified personnel.
