Mark, got your ears on? I am talking to Sunrise Yacht Products about bow nets and am currently leaning towards 1" web with 1 1/2" spacing, vinyl coated. My previous black polyester lasted over twenty years until they got "furry" and I trashed them. Those were 2" webbing. Richard at Sunrise recommends the one inch web. Any comments?
On other fronts, I am weaning off my old customers and preparing to go back into full-time work on my own boat within about a month or so. Getting the mast
and new sails
is the first big commitment, finishing off the galley
remodel and replacing the aft cabin
furnishings is next. Then I begin the dodger
. Last will be the repaint of the decks and cabin top, replacing the old deck gear
, the long-awaited swim/dive/boarding ladder, and the RIB
retrieval system. Absolutely last is the solar
array. It's been a long wait, but I have been busy in the meantime with the infrastructure of engine
, electrical system overhaul
, and lots of weird projects, such as the only eye-level oven
Force 10 stove on the planet. Hope this all works out as planned. I will be sending updates as they happen.
