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 just laid waterproof vanilla down on the floor only glued the panels on the hatches down been great for years. Was 10 bucks as a remnant


Don send me a link to the vane post . Finally put the suzuki up on local craigslist . I will take 750 if your interested. 9.9 extra long shaft electric start .

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

Finally painted the starboard cabinets, the chain locker (second coat) and under the sink area with some epoxy barrier coat. Put the cabinet doors back on so everything is progressing, prepped the hull and ready to spray when there is a good weather window.

Question for you all, what sort of adhesive do you suggest for the tops of the cabinet frames to attach it even more? I was thinking Sika flex or something similar.

Hahahah, fingers crossed! We expect to get it in the water by summer at least. We made a heck of a project out of, well everything. Could have just done the glass and dropped it back in the water years ago but glad we have the end in sight.

Just think 5 or 6 years of serious cruising and you get the pleasure of doing lots of it all again

Oh you hush now. Let him enjoy the glow of a successful project for a bit until reality sets in. I love seeing posts like this of old and/or neglected boats getting another shot at life.

Don, having sailed on your boat a couple of times I can say you have an awesome boat. She looks good and sails great, cant wait to be where you are! I love those cushion covers you got by the way, actually in the market right now for a place here in SoCal who can sell us some foam and cushion covers, well make them since I don't have time to sew them up right now.

You are EXTREMELY kind with your accolades but I know I'll be hiding out in another anchorage when you come by!

I got my foam at this place :https://foammart.com/
I took in the paper templates I made of butcher paper. (That's when I discovered the two berths in the bow were not identical!! I had not noticed the bulkheads were not the same dimensions!)
I had them covered at a local hole-in-the-wall, mom and pop upholstery place, who just happened to have just the right amount of faux leather for marine cushions on hand, (so I lucked out on that.)

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

Ended up sanding the inside of the salon lockers with some 80 grit to knock anything loose off and prep for the primer. Also got the side of the engine locker area by the quarter births, well where the inboard option would have been. Was able to prime inside where the factory drawers are on the Columbia 29 with the "cruisers layout". Once I roll on two or three coats of topside in all these areas this will be the end up interior painting, except the VERY last thing which will be the floor in the salon.

Hoping to have a nice weather window at some point here to spray the hull and that's the end of painting. Well except for the bottom job. We are hopeful that using quality topside paint inside as opposed to interior house paint will provide long lasting results.

Anyone have any suggestions of ideal glue to further attach the cabinet frames to the fiberglass? Thanks Don for the link to the foam supplier. Did you use the furniture foam or the topper foam?
