Equipment Relocation

This last weekend was spent re-locating some of the heavier shop equipment. It's previous location had a "cascade" blocking effect:

1. Equipment blocks port side of boat, which
2. Prevents hawse cleat and other deck hardware from installation, which
3. blocks further development in the engine room port side

and so on.

Besides, previous location would make exterior work on the hull more difficult (like painting, still a long ways off). So, dust collector, air compressor and shop vac got relocated to the "hack shack". Getting it out of the way, giving better protection from weather, and easier access to for maintenance.

One of those "I shoulda done it this way a long time ago" things.

Space under stairs, vacated by equipment.

New home for equipment. Even more compact than ever.
