Thank you for your input. I like the idea of making a cover for the dingy. I hadn't even thought about UV rays. I thought PVC dingys are solely used for fishing!
The dingy is 10ft with 3x layer of PVC, with paddles and is in good shape.
My boat refit
is going slowly, there are many original parts
that need replacing and with a limited budget
i have to prioritize what areas need fixing or replacing.
I have a leak that I cannot find. I have rebedded all the chainplates and stanchions on both sides of the mizzen and aft of the deck
I have repaired the 2 soft spot areas and yet I found water
inside the quarterberth this morning.
I have yet to decide alcohol or propane stove
, if I go for propane
where do I store it safely, then I have to decide what brand Chartplotter
to get that has AIS
system that is affordable.
came with only a Lowrance Depthsounder. I currently have 2 acid type batteries
, new. However I have come to learn about 2 other types of batteries
(Battle Born and Carbon Foam, both lithium)that are more efficient. Any thoughts is greatly appreciated. I need an autopilot
Vane, replace the lewmar
40 2 speed with self tailing
winches of the same brand!! Any thoughts?
I intend to get done by a rigger (tuned). The refitting journey is daunting and costly. Which leads me to another issue, I reside in Maryland
and I cannot find a company in or a distributor of Nidacore. To cut some cost I want to make my own dodger
using nidacore. Any thoughts.
