Just finishing up a refit
of 1969 hull #108. Galley
chart area is nearing completion and is totally new with rebuilt chart frig/ice box with proper insulation
. Major work on the deck/hull join. The glass in the hull where it turns to make the deck shelf was totally resin starved. Don't know how it stayed together all those years. Tore out the bad glass with a chisel and grinder then glassed in the hull to deck joint all the way around. Hopefully this will be the first FRP boat I've owned without a deck join leak. Tore out the large fixed ports
in the main cabin
and glassed the pukas in. Bought new opening ports
and cut them into the cabin
side. Boy is it nice to have that cross ventilation in the marina. Still have to do the wiring
and install LectraSan and tear out the POS holding tank
, install the tank for the cabin heater, and paint
the non skid. Hopefully will get out and do some sailing soon.
Bought the boat in Santa Cruz
and sailed it up to Alameda where I kept it for 5 years. Sailed it solo to Hawaii
in 2010. Hauled out in 2010 for the hull/deck repairs
. Plan on doing a circumnavigation
next year and back to Kona.
Will try and figure out how to upload a few pics or would love to exchange pictures of our creations via email
. PM me if you do.
