Well I dropped the stacks, stack mounts and davit mounts off to the powder coat shop this afternoon. The holes, I'll take some pictures tomorrow, are glassed up. Luckily I was able to swap out the coating work for some piling work. Great day

Hey Paul ,
Is your boat planked with jupiter and glassed over ? I know they used a lot of that in your area . Have you had to do any plank repair?

No the planking is cypress. I haven't had to replace any planks. They sea flexed the boat back in the 70's. The hull has more than a 1/2" of glass on it.

I'm using the mobile app so bear with me. We cut panels for the ceiling and have been removing hardware. Took the anchor, windless and chain apart and removed most of the stainless handrail. I also took the supports for the rear deck roof and inserted pressure blocks to make the roof flush. I'll take some more pictures tomorrow of the other work,

Hi Paul

Glad to see that you are moving forward on Cajun Rose.
She is a beauty

I assume your piling business is doing well

We will always remember Mardi Gras.

Regards

Tony B & Helen

That looks like an old Ideal windlass. If so it is a keeper!

Dang it I meant Juniper . I forgot to measure twice and cut once . This crap happens every time I get all confident and think I know what I'm talking about .
And I'm a lumber guy
Anyway nice work Paul . The Rose is shaping up to be one sweet Lugger .

It's actually a newer windlass the po had installed before the fire.
