I'm getting ready to head
back to the states to do a quick refurb
on our Catalina 30
So a few questions .
I aim for air con run off a small lpg genorator ( maybe Honda
But I've not got the geni yet I need that or a cheaper silent that runs on lpg.
I'm sticking a foamed back headliner
on lots of surfaces to help with insulation
. But getting mixed info about it peeling off with the heat ( Florida
) ? So spray on adhesive
or a paste on one . Or both ?
Right some of you will know the Catalina
floor it's a white wood grain has anyone ever used 2 mm peel and stick flooring
?? With any success ?
Another thought is it's a 1975 c30 I know it has a following and more or less they all seem to be original inside . Is it like a classic car if you restored it you'd go back like new or can I take it into the 21 St century without making it unsaleable . Please assume all work is perfect as I'm a skilled craftsman . ??
One last thing is the 6 windows 3 leak and they are terrible aluminium as we call it
if I bond one solid piece the full length ( as modern boats have ) leaving the structure internal the same , is this good or another wrong doing to the c30 .
I'm not doing this to make money
more make a nice next for the girlfriend but just don't want to make it worthless . Just trust me it will look fab . Thanks in advance and any other upgrades would be great to know .
