Thanks!
We had a contractor do the job on the fridge top - cost astronomical but it was in conjunction with installing holding tank so not sure exact value. Overpriced, unreliable, contractor - we were not there to supervise and have since learnt that he perhaps should not be trusted. Lovely stainless piano hinge, glassed and gel coated.

The cockpit covers/curtains are all removeable zipped individually. We used the original bimini frame and the bimini cover is laced on. We do have to remove the front corners to access the winches when sailing. We have a modification in mind that will enable to sail completely enclosed if we decide it is necessary.

Ah John, the tube down the middle is an extendable/retracting prod for our gennaker/screecher or whatever it is called.

Re: Please send pix for what you've done

A couple quick improvements we have done:

- Cutting board covers for the dish drain and "hole"
- Port companionway closet and laundry bag area.

Each take a few hours.

Re: Please send pix for what you've done

I suggest you spend time looking through members photos. If you see something of interest, send a PM. I have several thousand photos covering many projects on recovery of a hurricane damaged boat + upgrades but they are not loaded here.

Re: Please send pix for what you've done

I showed you mine
Show me yours!

I dropped my plastic fuel cap and it went under the fuel tank. Was able to get a female / man fitting from TSC galvanized $6 ish and a nice bronze fuel cap from NAPA $35 for the 2" cap

FYI

Re: Please send pix for what you've done

Will do, I'm still learning the rope for getting around here. Lol as being able to post more pix. Was working on the Fountaine page for learning what works and does not.
Open to all ideas, as it's an on going project. One day want to cruise and return to doing more scuba diving. The waters here are not, so good for diving.
Was down for 4 days without SPRINT WIFI, We now are on Verizon and strong signal.. still on sprint and still without service from sprint.... They say soon.
Anyway....
Any suggestion ?????
Ty

Happy to see your pix, PM if you like.
