There will be pocket doors between...
- forward v-berth and forward head
- forward salon and forward head
- the "tunnel" and the aft stateroom
- the aft head and the engine room
|Upper slide extrusion|
|Lower slide extrusion, embedded in the lower bulkhead|
|Sample section of a UHMW slide bearing held captive by the upper extrusion.|
- Compact. The pocket gap is a nice one inch width, allowing one-eighth inch space on each side of a three-quarter inch thick door panel.
- The extrusions are mechanically fastened to their cleats with machine screws/carriage bolts. This allows the entire door mechanism to be dismantled without destroying anything.
- As the extrusions are slotted on all four sides they can be used as cleats to mechanically fasten the wall panels that makeup the "pocket". Again with carriage bolts, making full access to the pocket door a non-destructive process. At worst, one may have to remove some bungs and trim concealing the bolts.
More later as things are permanently installed.
