Re: To refurbish or not to refurbish, that is the question

You're not really going to leave the mildewed foam and vinyl on the cabin sides?

No Terra Nova, the cleaning people are removing that from the main and forecabins.

Thats a lot work you have done there.

Some nice and precise joinery will solve a lot of the issues.
Need to find the area where it leaked in and reseal.

Well done that man!

Thanks Weavis.

I believe the water ingress was from the rectangular portlight seals, and also from the cabin vents. The opening portlights in the head, forecabin, and the hanging lockers show no sign of leakage. Some small leakage from the cable glands around the mast seat, and some from the security lock on the sliding hatch in the companionway.

I have sealed all of these temporarily with duct-tape/silicone sealant. I'll replace all of the seals once works are complete, then give it an IP56 dousing to see if there are any leaks left.

The Engine could do with a complete degrease and pressure blow off whilst you are in a mess....... check for rust and leaks and hoses and clips and gaskets and thermostats, and connections and electric etc......... Now is the time.....

Are you going to refit completely in USA or get it seaworthy and move it to your home for a refit at your leisure?

I'm afraid I've already missed this year's Atlantic crossing window, as I need to close up our home in Aberdeen before July 02nd.

My present plans are to let the specialist cleaner loose on the boat in May/June and vacation here in July/August. Assuming the mould is treated well she could be splashed in late July and hooked up to power, I could then put the jigsaw back together at leisure, and with aircon.

If all proceeds well she could be ready for a post-hurricane season trip to the Bahamas and an Atlantic crossing this time next year.

Re: To refurbish or not to refurbish, that is the question

That's my two weeks here up...

Boat stripped out now, ready for the mould cleaning technician. All things being equal she says it will be ready to enter again mid July; then the hard part, putting it back together.

It's been a little challenging working in 35C and 80% humidity. I'm actually looking forward to returning to cold Aberdeen, Scotland for a rest, back once my kid finishes school in July.
