Port-side Hawse Cleat

Is in! Well, roughed in at least. As with the drain below it, finish detail, cleanup and gooping will happen during painting. This little project has been nagging me for some time. The installation of the hawse cleat frees up a number of engine room projects that can now proceed, as underside access to the bulwark is no longer needed.

I had to tear apart the boarding stairs a bit to gain access to the outer hull area (hence all the dirt in the picture). Since the bulwarks here are a little thicker than the fitting accommodates, a little creative construction was needed. I used the same approach as with the aft hawse pipes.
