last picture is the cleaning of the hull. apparently there is a layer of ceramcote and it can not be removed.
when the hull is clean I will treat the ceramcote with a sealer and cover it with a proper antifouling.

Thumbs up

Very good job done.
So this winter you will stay on the hard?
Remembers me on our Ta Chiao 41.
Lots of work but God, what did I love that boat so it was not hard to continue.
Keep on doing the right work.

I had recently read another thread here on TF regarding the idea of some sort of insulation to help cut down on condensation forming on the inside of the hull, but am curious if I should think about doing that for helping keep the temperature up during off season cruising...

I did insulation for temperature in our CT41 a few years ago for most of the places I could reach. I used X-trem for campers. It comes in different thickness and can be glued to the hull. It also comes with selfsticking back if you like. I just put it everywhere I could reach the hull. The good thing is you can bend it so it will follow the edges of the hull. I used 1 and 2 cm and just doubled it where possible. We did not glued it, just put it in place. It helps against moisture as well. Drier air is easier to warm up and so cheaper, and with less moisture you have less condensation. We got the boat back from high in 80% to a comfortable 60% in wintertime while we lived on it. Even in summertime it helps to keep the heat out. Also in my present boat which is double scaled we used X-Trem in places where possible. Never use glasswool in your boat. It will suck up the moisture and is not able to get rid of it. It will sack, is that the right term? and will become snotty. Steel boats which were done in the past by handyman are completely corroded away from the inside because they used glasswool. Use a closed cell foam what can withstand water. Hope this will add some info.

isolating for temperature. want to keep the heat in, in winter. using a 6mm thick (?1/4 in?) double aluminium layered closed cell insulation.
I can just squeeze it in between. because it is cheap to come by I apply 2 layers where I have enough space

the story continues

there was a wastewater deck cap which was not in use and in the wrong place. because I'm going to lay a new deck, I'm going to close this hole with epoxy and teak for extra support.
the small holes around the big one first were filled with wood rot stopper. it was a bit damp on the inside. next i injected thickened epoxy in the small holes until it poured into te big hole. kept on doing this until all holes were full.

after letting it set I filled up the square with left over teak I had laying around, imbedded in bostik.

only a quick sand down and ready for the new deck overley

Standing on my swimming platform I broke off a corner. because I had installed a small dinghy cleat I was already planning to reinforce this corner so I did this right away.

screwed a 4mm stainless steel plate on the underside which also rested on the existing support.

I also finally got a job done which has been the longest on my list. its on my list since the first day.
when I bought my boat, it had to be sailed to my harbor. after the first day of four, on the water I moored it at a marina. the previous owner had left a bottle of champagne in the fridge for us.
I have sailed the boat with my proud father (also a oldtime boater). because we had something to celebrate, we immediately emptied the bottle
happy from front to back we went to our cabins, closed the doors and went to bed.
the next morning I thought I had a hangover. I was sick, nauseous and dizzy all day which did not go away. it must be something else.
when we arrived at the second port on our trip I went to investigate and found a hole underneath the stairs in the back cabin. probably an old heater ventilation port. the heater was removed but the venthole was never sealed up so there was an open hole to the engineroom.
that was for sure the reason I had a headache.
that evening I MacGyvered a piece plastic and tape and slept with the door open.

finally at my own marine I found the culprit of the whole story. a rotten exhaust! next to the old heater vent hole.

replaced the rotten one for brand new one but sailed for four years with the piece of plasic still MacGyvered over the hole.

now the time has come to make it pretty. sealed the hole and placed a nice fake ventilation grate

my new deck has arrived so I can finish another job.
first the deck had to rest to become flat and the underlaymend had to be the primed. then it can be glued.

Because the new deck had to be laid around the samson post, a seam was created which was later welded together.
