Looking pretty good. Much better than that brown stuff on the right of the second picture.

We just purchased an Island Packet as well. Teak refinishing is on the project list. Haven't gotten to that one yet. It appears you have this down and it's looking great. May need some tips when we are ready to start.

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

Weekday - work for boat parts.
This coming weekend - Saturday, start engine (somehow); run new cable for depth sounder; any other work is a plus. Sunday - Mother's Day, visit Mom (and enjoy a day off).

I think this should be in the joke thread.  I do something most every day. This morning as I got up to go to work, I startled a sleeping sea lion and had to clean up because he sprayed stinky fishy sea lion poo all over the side of our boat and dock. Ugh. And my work friends think I live a glamorous life!! LOL

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

had a couple of sunny days, so the winter cover is off, the engine is down for a preliminary test fit (got to cut away some of the bearer to clear the solenoid) and figured out where to put the sea chest. Also got meaurements for a load of new floor beams. Spilled a coffee on the access panel which immediately dripped onto the engine so now its under a tarp again BENEATH the access hatch.

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

Varnished in the garage and installed trim on the boat. It must have been 110 degrees down below. I had to mop up after myself every three minutes. I need to remember to open the hatches.

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

Installed the tiller pilot yesterday. Seems to work (no time for sea trials before the night) but I can't write here what I think of Raymarine connector technology, for it wouldn't be nice at all.

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

Serviced the traveler and went for a quickie sail.
Sun, wind AND slack tide without a huge swing all at the same time !

As for work; I've been replacing flooring in the cabin and building in a real head. Today I fit in a new countertop and different sink. Every Spring I do a major project the the middle of July head out for as long as I can.
See my blog.

See my blog.
End of July is the middle of southwest monsoon and less than stellar sailing. The list is long and I am expecting a longer than normal haulout...

1 - pull engine. Send for overhaul
2 - pull saildrive, batteries, etc. Clean up engine/saildrive/battery bay. Clean up and paint or replace battery bay floor. Install new saildrive boot and motor mounts. Clean up wiring
3 - remove deck hardware. Rework piano area clutches installation
4 - prep and paint foredeck
5 - polish and reinstall deck hardware
6 - anti foul
7 - install engine if done. Install after splash if not
8 - odd jobs - Zincs, service head and seacocks, winch servicing, clean up wiring connections, patch up lazarettes and covers. Bimini, dodger, sailcover stitching, install additional mast cleat, yada, yada...
9 - Option 1. Do interior refit. Option 2. Patch up interior and try and get 2 more years out if it. (probably gonna be option 2 - LOL)

Jeez I need to retire to own a boat...
