Re: Part 2 - Columbia 29 refit, in the Rocky Mountains

finally, feel like we are making progress and moving in the right direction. Nothing is perfect but it's being perfected much like my wife and I haha.

Re: Part 2 - Columbia 29 refit, in the Rocky Mountains

Well got the small Lewmar 30 hatch in today. I found a bit of butyl tape to provide a seal around it. Once I get the corners of the frame rounded off the match I will run some thickened epoxy around to prep it for glass. Also, fill in some of the gaps between the frame and the dog housetop.

Really provides some great light in the boat and more air, can't complain about that! Anyway, we are back on track and getting lots done. The wife is planning to do some sanding and painting this week.

I will check out pic monkey, the odd thing is the orientation is not the same as it appears on my phone as it is here on the forum. Oh well

Re: Part 2 - Columbia 29 refit, in the Rocky Mountains

Shooting portrait mode in the first place, is generally more forum-friendly, given most people are on phones these days.

Getting closer to a square aspect ratio by cropping is also a good "platform independent" strategy.

Re: Part 2 - Columbia 29 refit, in the Rocky Mountains

finally got the hatch frame rounded. will post up some photos of the prep for laying some glass. Need to run some thickened epoxy around the seam so the glass cloth will lay properly.

Re: Part 2 - Columbia 29 refit, in the Rocky Mountains

you know its funny. We thought we would be done with the project by now. For any of you who have boats, I'm sure that's no shocker. Everything takes a bit longer than anticipated but we're trying to pour some love back into the old girl.

Took our RIB out the other night for a paddle around the Marina. It was funny since we saw a Pearson Triton that James Baldwin had refit for a guy out here. Her name was Catalyst and I had watched the refit videos awhile ago. Beautiful boat
