Thanks Don, slow going. Can't wait to spray the hull and then knock out a bottom job.

To do list:
  • solar panels
  • electrical wiring
  • radio install
  • hard dodger
  • spray hood X 2
  • mount windlass
  • glass in G10 cockpit drain backing plates
  • Formica for counter tops
  • storage for surfboard on lifelines
  • swim step or something to get in and out of the water easily

That doesn't sound like a bad idea either.

I'd like to find one that is permanently attached, on the side and folds up even with the lifelines/stanchions. Have you seen one like that?

I have one that folds in 3 and stores in the gate opening. Btw a side deck ladder is better than stern in many ways. Can raft dinghy alongside more securely and if there is chop the amidships area has less movement than stern. Also swimming keeps cockpit drier

Whitewater marine I believe makes one:

That's the kind of thing I'm looking for, thanks! A custom ladder will be a little pricey for me though I am afraid. And yes, a ladder of the stern only seems like a good idea at the boat show!

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

Final test fit (I think) of the anchor platform. Marked up the areas I need to fair before i spray the hull this week (fingers crossed). Got the anchor platform polished up and tabs welded on for mounting the teak slats.

Have also started to create templates for the foam matting we are adding to the lockers and cabinets above the water line. For two reasons, one to insulate them from condensation and second to quiet the boat down a bit from anything banging around inside.

Laid down quite a bit of halycon varnish on the starboard side cabinets we added in. At least two or three more coats then I will let it cure few days, mask and paint the inside of the lockers with barrier coat paint. Then, templates and foam on the insides of them.

About ready to figure out what were going to do for the cabin sole. We have considered paint, vinyl flooring but wanted to see what you guys have really enjoyed over the years?

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

Well I think you know my story, the PO glued down vinyl flooring which looked great for the years he had it I imagine. But getting it off and that black mastik off the wood is a job I hope to never see again. Mine is now painted light sand non-skid and with rugs with rubber backing laid down that can be easily washed and they don't slip on the floor. A shiny teak and holly floor looks great but it can be slippery. I can still do something different in the future if I want to, but for now it is really comfortable, easy to clean and non slippery. And the rugs look nice too.
On a side note I am selling my horizontal axis wind vane if you know anyone interested, I figure I'll never really get around to trying it out. It's a little too big for our boats I think but if you are interested you can check out the ad I put in here.

i will take a look at it, a wind vane sounds nice for one of my buddies with a 36 footer. The paint and non skid with rugs isn't bad.
