Thanks very much and yes I have deployed a few times and serving the Republic has been one of the biggest honors of my life. Semper Fi.

painted many a house with them and a few boats to
best part is they are low cost so if you forget to clean it well your not out a lot of money

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

More updates, working on dry fitting the salon port lights. Realized I need to grab some 3/4'' marine ply to properly fit the depth of the Beckson Newports. The stuff I have is a bit too thin but at least the piece I got fit well can be used as a model for the next four.

Went to see another CF member boat build and came back with a cat. Been having rodent problems so when they had a litter of barn cats, it was perfect timing. He is pretty small but gets on well with our guard dog.

The plywood will need to have a slight curve to fit, so hopefully I can cut in some nice kerfs (hope that is spelled properly). Put a photo of them here, it really allows for a nice little bit of curve in the plywood. I guess the trick then is to get the new port lights fit in flush.


Also working on the companionway, got the first coat of stain on today and sanded down all the wood filler. It’s certainly not perfect but I think once we use the wood filler primer stuff from TotalBoat and the varnish it should come out decently.

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

Working on getting the radius right in the corners with hole bits, glad to have a drill press and some clamps. Certainly, having a table saw would be nice but still, getting stuff done!

Even though these new ports a quite a bit smaller we are excited to have the ability to open them up and catch a breeze. Also, they wonít leak which is huge. The more modern look and matching our other ports is appealing too.

The game plan by the way is to epoxy in the marine ply, dish it out on the exterior and then glass it in on the outside first then glass the inside. If anyone has other suggestions on a better method or stronger, I am certainly open to good ideas.

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

Dan Aadland was kind enough as I mentioned earlier to let us check out his Roberts Spray, very beautiful. That guy does some very nice work, maybe he will post up a few photos of her here. I am trying to persuade him and his wife to buddy boat with us out in the Bahamas perhaps.

We will be helping them next week put their boat on an amazing trailer, maybe we will be able to share some photos of the adventure. Anyway, have a great night everyone.

Seafever is a great sail . On Long Island sound the wife was yelling not to get all the wind in one day while stretching her legs after coming out off the Connecticut River. She was not fond of my standing abeam in the cockpit and heeling a bit . An occasional bit of rocking horse but i dont mind that..

A lady is putting up labor on our trimaran. She will take ownership of Seafever eventually.. Bittersweet I admit.... but i hope to sail on her again !

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

picked up 3/4'' marine ply today which is the perfect fit for the beckson ports to sit flush with the trim ring. Was a bit disappointing since a few of the pieces had voids in it which I thought was what marine ply was supposed to not have

Got the frames cut out again and dry fit to the new ports. Cleaned and prepped one window and taped into place, tomorrow I should epoxy all four in. Then need to figure out if Sikaflex is okay for the plastic of the new ports. They told me they suggest only silicon and to check with Sikaflex, so I will give those folks a call.


Anyway, been slow progress this week.

Seafever what a good name. Hopefully you get to go out on her again.

When possible I recommend butyl tape for sealant. More flexible and stays waterproof. My 31 year old boatís deck hardware and hatches/ports have never leaked a drop (knock knock) and are sealed with butyl. Once you use silicon itís tough to go back as it leaves a residue.

Thanks for the advise, I will see if Home Depot or Lowes has any Butyl tape. Perhaps in this install it would work fine on the plastic. I will do some research.
