You may notice I only hooked up two wires instead of three. The marinebeam tri-color only requires two wires to run it. As I understand it most other lights require three. So I figured better to run three up the mast now, so if the light ever needs to be replaced there is no need to re-cable.

First coat of topside down.
Are the sheaves in there? I am trying to see if the screws going in will interfere with the sheaves or halyards. Probably not. You've probably checked for that already. Looking good! We won't be able to share the same anchorage now I'm afraid!

Jim there is nothing wrong with monel split rings . But if not monel then yes replace with monel cotter pins. And buy a big package you will need lots of them. And will want a few spares.

Yes the sheaves are in and I did check for clearance, but I am glad you asked because that would have been ugly had I forgotten. We are absolutely going to come up and see your islands when this is all done.

Thanks for the input, please educate me as to why a cotter pin is better for this? Anything I can do improve the rig but I would like to know the why. I look forward to your answer.

An errant line can snag a cotter ring, known widely as ring dings, and rip it out. A properly sized cotter pin will fit the hole in a clevis pin whereas cotter rings do not.

Good to hear that. I had thought the rings would be less to snag on when compared to a cotter pin with two legs. I suppose I can sand them down so the ends aren't sharp and give it a good bend.



Thanks for the info

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

Okay question for the group. I am on the second coat of topside paint and have a few bubble rings from where my sweat fell into the paint (it was hot, wearing tyvek, don't judge me haha). So what is the best way to fix small errors in the paint? Wet sand with 220, use a buffing wheel or something else? Its all cured by the way, but I want the third and last coat to be as beautiful as possible.

First off stop sweating on the boat it's disrespectful to the boat .
Secondly wet sanding with 220 is a good plan

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

I know, I know don't sweat on the boat. Anyway, got the last two coats of topside paint on today. It looks so darn nice the hull paint looks awful now. Part of the problem is we chose Blue-Glow white from TotalBoat wet edge. And it looks so brilliant with just a hint of blue to be easier on the eye strain so I'm told.



So the existing paint looks more parchment white, so while its still not in terrible shape, now might be the bets time to paint the entire boat with the same paint. Plus I still have a couple extra gallons of the Wet Edge from Total Boat on the shelf.
