Wow! Thanks for posting those minaret. There is a nasty flu going around, my husband was down over the holidays with a very high temperature and general flu-ishness. I hope you are feeling better soon!

Of course! Many, many more pics to follow.


It IS a nasty one. My problem is this is round three for me this winter, every time I start to get better I get another bug. I have twin five year old daughters, and they are little virus factories. I don't remember what it's like to be well anymore, and working fourteen hour days seven days a week in the freezing cold and pouring rain is NOT helping. Finally had to just drop tools and go home this afternoon. It has been a truly epic project. Thanks for your well wishes!

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

This is what it looks like when osmosis becomes hydrolysis, resulting in delamination. In this case , a dry rudder layup really contributed to the problem. We triple peeled it, and then ground off about 80% of the laminate before getting to good stuff. I'm going to glass both rudder and skeg back up with some carbon uni's. Shockingly, the rudder is actually dry inside.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Wow what a project! Are you going to glass the decks or put new teak down?

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Hi-density core + glass. No more teak decks for me. We are also epoxy sealing and painting much of the trim.

They are quite nice. But, like any boat, after a certain amount of time they need a LOT of work, as evidenced here. Perhaps some more pics of my misery will cure you. Here's part of what we had to do to pull the rudder. The coupler was welded to the shaft with a bit of rust and a press fit, had to cut it off to remove it. Just another bit of boat surgery...

Quite the project Minaret. Good Luck with it. I will enjoy the progress as we go along.

Thanks for the good luck, I'll need it!
Physical illness is the first true sign that the restoration has begun. Did you include this in your schedule? I'm half serious, for most projects-depending upon duration-I allow for up to 1/3 of the crew to be incapacitated by illness somewhere along the line. While maintaining a schedule is important, it is secondary to the quality of work completed. Diminished ability because of illness is the enemy. Now it's up to you to control the effects of illness. Do not underestimate the recuperative powers of rest.

I will enjoy this thread immensely. Thank you for posting. Rest well and best wishes.

PS: Pic #2 of your 1st post, I am curious about the exposed elec. wiring in the cockpit at the base of the mizzen. Will this be left as is after completion?
