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

Spent hours sanding in preparation for interior painting. Big rush on this so we can get the port lights in and sealed up.

Thanks Thruska, not that we are trying to do anything crazy. Something in me just forces me to do it the way we are. I'm sure there are guys out there who do much better work faster hahaha. Anyway we are excited about the boat.

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

Hello,


Got the last of the raw fiberglass edge on the two small port-lights in the quarter births cut off. Still need to sand it down real smooth, but getting there. Also did a bit more sanding in the salon, lots of loose paint and some big chunks of epoxy. Ended up needing to use my Makita belt sander to get the bulk off. Then clean it up with the orbital.

Hopefully just a little more sanding and fairing then I can finally lay out some paint.

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

Ended up buying two Lewmar EVO 30 self tailers and two EVO 40's, all in gray. West
Marine had the best deal we have seen in the last year and a half. It was 30% off plus an extra good bit in rewards as a gold member. Certainly not inexpensive but we did it. I selected the EVO over the Ocean as the EVO warranty is seven years and the Ocean is only two or three years. Lower profile and a few other details.

Didn't realize I needed to also buy the studs separately, jokes on me. We are at the stage in the boat where we needed them. Need to mount the winch bases and affix the backing plates and glass in gussets before we roll the inside of the boat out.

Hopefully the existing two mounts I have fit these new winches. I'm sure the hole pattern wont fit so I will likely need to address that.

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

In case I haven't yet mentioned it, I'm tired of fairing! This is the third or fourth stage of fairing inside. A few more small areas to clean up, I ran out of time today. Also found a spot that needs a tiny patch of glass or some chopped up strand thickened.

In the quarter births, V-birth, head and hanging locker everything is ready for paint. I test fit the portlights today and had to clean up lumps of fairing compound overage. So this weekend I will begin with 2 coats of epoxy barrier coat paint, followed by 1-2 of primer then the wet edge paint from total boat in blue glo white.

Have got some great ideas on using PVC foam or marine foam for a hard dodger. These folks have a similar sized boat out of Australia and they are using inexpensive PVC foam from Lowes or Home Depot to build a nice looking hard dodger. Great motivation and ideas.

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

Oh man she will be beautiful! All I did a couple days ago was take the engine mount off and remove the hatch lid for the lazarette to rebuild the whole thing, and that is only the removal part! I have my engine mount/hoist off and in my car. If you are interested in checking it out you are welcome to come up and borrow it for a while. It sure works well for me. I am going to take it apart and paint the wood and replace the engine mount section itself with a big piece of Starboard or some nice big piece of wood.
If you want to go sailing, that's fine, it will be engineless! I'll let you row!

Yes the pink foam board will work great its just like making a surfboard.sand and shape to your needs and glass it over with cloth sand and fair it a bit then a coat of topping resin and your good to go . Add some pigment to the last coat of resin and crack a beer.

Don, That is quite a bit of work so post up pictures. I will certainly take you up on that if we are in the area, haven't been sailing in ages. I like rowing the boat, it's strangely enjoyable. We are going to set ours up to accept oars like you did. That starboard is not cheap but it will be a one and done job, you will never have to deal with it again. While not as beautiful as stained wood, zero maintenance is very attractive.

I have never used it and am VERY excited its MUCH cheaper than "marine foam". Seems perfectly suitable for the core of a hard dodger. I am also thinking it might be a good skeleton for our solar/surfboard mount off the back. Easier to work with than stainless but who knows where that will go, certainly will not be using plywood!

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

Great seeing your updates. Your project is progressing nicely. Those EVO 40’s are a big winch for a 29 footer but one never hears complaints about too large a winch!
