Let There Be Light!

I'm sure you'll find this hard to believe, but in this picture you're actually looking through the acrylic.  I know it won't last long - wind, dirt, bugs, sails, and sun will all conspire to scratch and craze this gloriously clear piece of hatch acrylic but for the moment just let me bask in delusion and enjoy the nice, light, airy interior of my home.  I'm not sure why, but for some reason finishing this project has done more to improve my mood than just about anything else on the boat.  In fairness I should say TIM finishing this project, as I have been a completely useless bum today.  I had good intentions, mind you, of restitching a friend's sail but found I needed some supplies from Sailrite so it will have to wait till next week.  In the meantime, I'm going to sit here in the salon at my table and enjoy the light. And later?  I'm going to cook a really special dinner for He Who Completes Projects :)

Aren't they fantastic? I was a little surprised though because the acrylic looked a lot darker in the store. I'm hoping they don't make it too horribly hot in here in the summer. Gonna have to make some shades next! said...

Oh, that is PRETTY! You are going to love that hatch so much!
