|Overhead of the forward salon (port)|
Insulation has been cut and installed in the forward and main salon, including the overhead, under-deck. At the same time, the cleats for the attachment of the final interior cladding (whatever we decide it to be) has been glued and set.

The cleats are made from the low density grade Coosa, 1 inch thick, that curves nicely with the deck. Glued with epoxy and set with a couple tapping screws. The cleats have 10-24 tee nuts embedded every six inches. This should be enough to hold up whatever overhead we decide, with some sort of hardwood strip.
