I will be heading back down to our 1981 Stevens 47 late next week to begin tackling some major refit work
First on the agenda is to totally rip out the ancient fridge/freezer and build a completely new system. I am going with dual Frigoboat units with keel
I also need to get our existing dodger
top modified to a full cockpit
enclosure and have some large sun shades made.
I also need some stainless steel
fabrication and welding in order to have the stern pushpit extended up to the gates. I want all the railing/lifelines on the stern of the boat
to be stainless steel
as I plan to mount solar panels
here. I also need to have one of our water tanks
modified or a new stainless tank made.
I am also going to be installing a larger battery
bank, battery monitor
and a number of bits of new electronics
and such plus my electrical
systems needs some general repairs
up so I need a good marine electrical
So.... REFERRALS! Who can refer me to some talent in the Jacksonville
area for any and all of the above type skills. I need GOOD and CHEAP
... or at least reasonable.
