Interior Painting...I'll Get A Video Soon

I have not yet gotten the video(I like video more than photos. Cushions are all in. Cockpit and cabin. If you notice in one of the photos, the tabbing is not painted. I had a messed with the tabbing a bit. Boat is looking good. Exterior pain is coming shortly along with sails and running rigging. Thinking of going with dyneema for the standing rigging. I did my lifelines in dyneema and love it. Very easy to do.

Does it stretch. NO. Will you notice it loosens after you do it...yes. Will you intially think it stretched....yes. What I found when doing the lifelines is that the fibers are not pulled as tight as possible and you do your splices and put it all together. A day or so of sailing and pulling on it and you will notice it is looser than when you started. It will also feel harder to the touch. It did not stretch, but pulled tighter as It does not come "pre tightened/stretched". I would think that most people would assume it stretched as I did, but upon closer inspection, I noticed it was noticeably harder.

Fun projects, don't even feel like work.

Can't wait to see the difference when I get new sails on there and see how she sails compared to my current sails.

The teak trim pieces that would be equal to baseboard molding on a home do not look as good as leaving them off. In the V-berth, I put the trim pieces back on after painting and it looked cleaner with them off. So I decided to keep them off.
