Re: Future Brown Water Cruiser: 1969 Chris Craft Roamer 46 Refit

The latest blog is about more shiny...this time, it's on the helm dashboard and aft deck interior.

More leg tease...

The latest installment of the topside paint series on my Roamer 46 covers painting the aft enclosure exterior.

I'm all giddy. :-)

The 240 will graduate to the marina parking lot once it graduates from the rotisserie in the garage. All things in due time...

In other news, I cut window patterns over the weekend. It'll be nice to finally have the boat weatherproof, though delivery of the aluminum framed windows will take 6~8 weeks. I also made a bow pulpit for the anchor roller I'm installing on my other boat.

All things in due time, zh.

Getting closer to having the paint phase of this refit done every day. My latest blog article is on taping off the boat for the non-skid. Once we paint that, we're about three "paint days" from being done.

Better take a seat, zh.

The boatamalan painter called the other day around 8:30AM...said he was just leaving the tent, having sprayed the non-skid...that wasn't scheduled to be sprayed until this weekend.

Gotta love the Boatamalans.

1969 Chris Craft Roamer 46 Refit: Non-skid!

I need to take more boat stuff out of the garage and put it back on the Roamer before I could even see the car!

It could happen! lol

The paint work from the rub rail up is done! This weekend, we're finishing up the fairing on the hull and then spraying the final coat of Awlgrip 545 primer. This Roamer will be painted top to bottom by next weekend!

There was also another hiccup with a highly paid contractor whose work I had to go back and re-do.

Thanks, zh!

The Boatamalans took the weekend off (they're super busy over at Weaver Boatworks), so I started working on the exhaust system.

Thanks!

But don't just take notes...real, hands-on experience is priceless! Go grab one of those 36" longboards and a roll of 220 grit Mirka!



In other news, I took down the second-story scaffolding.
