The ladder project is done

The reason that one new floor panel was installed is that we put a linier actuator on the companionway ladder and needed the to make sure it was installed correctly. We have been in and out of the engine room a gazillion times in the last year and each time we took the ladder off it hinges and propped it against a wall, usually in the galley. The silly thing is pretty heavy not to mention that it was always in our way. The danger was that one of us would be outside when the other moved the ladder and would not notice…needless to say a fall through the companionway would not be funny so it was a big safety issue in our opinion.
