here washing the chain as it comes up with the windlass quite a bit of water can get into the locker not to mention the possible boarding waves when you go submarine in heavy weather . Just don't want that in the bilge

I can see that. Then a very small hole with one of those little drain hole covers facing aft.

a small hole, with one of those clam shell vents sounds reasonable. This might be easy depending upon where the waterline is. I forgot to measure last weekend.

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

Hello,

Making some progress and getting comfortable using E2000 epoxy barrier coat. Worked on the companionway slider, filled in the gaps with thickened epoxy, faired, laid glass, sanded, faired.....faired some more and then epoxy barrier coat (three coats). Started on our small folding table for the Lagun table leg as well as a fixed flip-up and lock table/counter extension. Still need to locate appropriate sized hinges in stainless or cast aluminum.

Lots of sanding, routing, drilling, etc. Was able to borrow the neighbors router, wow what a cool tool. I had never used one before and will be adding one to the collection of tools.

Ha! But it’s too beautiful to put out into the elements until I can’t hoist the anchor by hand anymore. Then I’ll need it! Get it and hold it for me for 10 years or so!:
Oh well, 406, you better snatch it up quick!!

I would, except we purchased a Royal Lofrans last year. That looks solid though.

Got a little painting done, companionway slider as well as our folding table for the Lagun leg. Tried many times with rollers and paint brushes, with poor results. Much sanding, re-fairing and finally broke down bought a Wagner airless paint sprayer. If you haven't ever used one, believe me when I say it;s the best $100 one can spend painting a boat!

Using TotalBoat Wet Edge topside paint and the matching primer. Also laid down some E2000 epoxy barrier coat first and I have to say it looks AMAZING and the best price. https://www.jamestowndistributors.co...t.do?pid=64351

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

Hello,

Got some fairing done, finished paint on a few small items. Now waiting for it to cure all the way. Made some g10 washers for the upper and lower chain plates. Was impressed with how thick the knees were, about an inch and a half or perhaps slightly more. Everything was rock solid and dry.

Prepped lots of glass, now were exposing some more little spider web cracks. Planning to grind them all out and fill with thickened epoxy (structural filler) and a few more spots of glass. Which has shown us a few spots that flex a bit or have over the years.

Which means we will gusset, glass in some areas and use the 1/2" Airex marine foam we bought in others. When it's all done we think it will be a little bit stiffer. We can already tell a difference when walking on the decks by adding gussets in a few key places.

Such great little boats with simple construction that are easy to repair. Anyway, getting close to being ready to splash day by day. Oh also wanted to say a real nice guy who has been working on boats for 35 years came by and faired a few spots for us and gave us some tips and tricks.

We are very appreciative and without the help of nice people along the way we wouldn't have been able to do any of this. Boat people are generally nice people, kinda like rural Montana people. Kind, helpful and self sufficient.

Rob,

I imagine it's the same here. Due to over-spray most yards wouldn't want you to use them. That said, the results are far better than anything we could ever accomplish with rollers or brushes. Appreciate the kind words on the paint, hoping the decks and cabin trunk come out as well. We were blessed with light winds and warm temps.

Anyone know of a large enclosed space we can paint her in located in Southern California hahaha.

build a temporary garage . Frame with pvc and skin with clear poly sheeting .
Look up DIY building a high tunnel greenhouse. They do it here all the time to protect the painting from the rain .

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

Hello,


Got our folding shelf brackets installed to create a small fold up counter top extension today. Used some extra teak marine-ply. Sanded the entire decks and cabin trunk. did a bunch more glass work where stress cracks had formed and developed a plan going forward to mitigate future cracks. mainly fabbing gussets, lay glass, marine foam and installing G10.



Will do a bit of grinding tomorrow, more glass on the combings, mast and maybe a little work on the wood.
