Of course you own a salvage company as well lol. Well on another note, planning to knock this out asap. Ordering the 316 stainless tubing tonight I believe. Going to go with 1.25'' round tube with wall thickness of .083. For the cross member was thinking .065 because they don't stock .083 in the 316. I figure for its purpose that should be sufficient.

For the bobstay I have some material left over already in 316 I can use. I believe its .25'' or something close and will use that for the platform feet also. For the corners I might need to get some help from the shop to accomplish the "El Corner" but can easily cut and fab up the mitered corner look. I don't suppose that matters much practically more aesthetics.



Anyone have anything like this on their boat who would like to tell me how wide they made it? I figure 16'' would be more than enough for the anchor and something to stand out on as a platform for fun. Thoughts?

Ok I'm lost what are you making and what does it have to do with a bobstay?

Making an anchor platform to clear up some deck space. In the diy article the lower support is referred to as a bobstay. Will just give the platform additional support/strength. Obviously I wont be re-rigging as a slutter but wanted to have a little platform to go and stand on as well as push the anchor out. Pretty excited to make it actually since I like the look of such things.

Wow, refitting our boat to go from no inboard to installing one is a big job...

That must have the same footprint as the MD7A. My buddy has the MD7A and it is in good shape, but maybe good to have a spare on hand!

The real difference between the a and b is bore and stroke meaning more hp for same base block . So yes same footprint and all.

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

I was very concerned about rolling out the paint inside the boat but it came out very well by our standards. Not perfect like spraying but very nice. Still need to work the quarter births but once this all cures in a few more days i can finally install the port-lights and air only vents.

Still need to paint inside the lockers but figured at this point we need to get port-lights and doors installed to save the deck and cabin trunk paint from getting beat up by a tarp. Was able to glass the G10 backing plate (to the hull) for the speed/depth sensor. Only two more backing plates to glass in, the two massive ones for the cockpit drains.

The order in which you do things during a refit can save lots of time, money and headache.

Wow, she's going to be the sweetest C29 around. I'm going to have to anchor TWO coves away now!

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

Finally getting a little more work done on mine yesterday, racing to meet summer! I also made the cut in the cabin sole to open up the bilge access to store my chain... I drilled and poked to make sure there was NO chance I'd accidentally cut into the hull, and STILL I was nervous about making the cuts! It's all good and it was like opening up Kint Tut's tomb! We found some shavings and a piece of wood left in there from the day she was built. My son now has that piece of wood preserved in a special container as a memento and to add to the provenance. The wood down there was bone dry, no water ingress or rot of anything, it all looked brand new.
It sure is fun to change dusty corners into glossy white storage areas, eh?

Also, something I discovered, and I wonder if yours had this too, there are two steel rings embedded in the top of the ballast, and I am wondering now if they molded the lead to fit inside the keel and lowered it down in? Would be interesting to hear from anyone who worked at Glas Laminates in the early days.
