I don't have a thread...yet. I might create one though.

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

Today was more staining, big fiberglass patches where the dorade boxes were. We figure with all the opening portlight and plans to put in the Air Only vents we don't need them.

That little heater is awesome by the way, keeps the garage hot all night when we run two of them. Makes the stain dry real nice so we can get to work the next morning without concern, our nights are getting into the 40's.

A picture of all the TotalBoat products we use from Jamestown, seems to be great stuff at good prices. The surface prep is excellent, we had issues with the duct tape sticking for our backing on the patches and hole filling. Not anymore with the surface prep and it goes a long way. Going to use it to prep for paint in a few weeks lord willing also. I haven't found the TotalBoat adhesive additive to make thickened epoxy yet so still using West Systems and of course that's good stuff too.

My wife spotted that area where the wood was separated below the sink, so we put a bit of wood glue in and threw the clamps on. I am sure that will be sufficient for what it is, just a trim piece really.


Also got several holes cleared of silicon and getting them ready to fill with thickened epoxy. Now to fill the windlass hole and then locate a new windlass to mount up. I have no desire to pull anchor by hand, thinking about the Lofrans manual version but am still looking if anyone has advice on nice manual options of very low power consumption power versions.


The Makita belt sander is wonderful for fiberglass repairs, especially when you hook the shop vacuum up to it. I took a shot of that adapter, found it at the local hardware store for $3 and am very pleased. In case I haven't mentioned it already I don't really enjoy being itchy from fiberglass.

Hmmm.. I am usually up for a good adventure, but I'd say cruise around Puget Sound and THEN put her back on the trailer and come down to SF and start south from there. That is plenty of adventure

Do you need to move your boat? It would be a perfect fit, just drop it right in and maybe fine tune depending upon how she was set on the trailer. Any idea how much new topside paint would run?

no clue to costs for painting a coach I don't have one of those things just decks.
No don't need to move boat anywhere she can't go on her own bottom
Hauling it out at the local boat ramp would be cheap way for bottom job.
They don't care ad long as I put down a tarp to contain everything.
The shop next to the ramp is a friends place

Always good to have the freedom to paint yourself and a friend with a shop nearby. I was referring to the paint from the waterline up. We going to paint the coach and decks ourselves as soon as we are done with the new salon windows and fiberglass repairs.

I have to say, I am not excited to spend an entire day sanding down the fiberglass patches and filled holes. But am excited for the final product and cant wait to pressure wash her down and be done with itching when you sit down on the boat.

Looking forward to using the two part fairing stuff from TotalBoat, haven't ever faired anything and for some reason it seems interesting and rewarding to get it looking nice.

Still haven't decided what we want to do for non-skid. A marine service provider in SD was telling us he makes his own using gel coat and the epoxy thickening additive. Have directions for it somewhere around here, he claims it lasts at least 10 years.

Speaking of which, I need to start reading and watching YouTube videos on how to roll and tip topside paint on so we don't get streaks.

Last time I painted like that I used a 20 dollar Wagner airless worked great and just need to run some thinner through it afterwords.
