Okay Everyone Check Her Out

I finally got a pic to post for my avatar.* Probably looks just like every other CHB you all have seen a hundred times before, BUT....she's pretty special to us.* Just wanted to share with you all, as you ALLl were so helpful with all my questions during the purchase and survey.* Thanks.* We are still working on getting he transom painted so we can put on the new name.* Will post a pic when we get that done.

Patti/Rocky, life will never be the same again. Congrats and good luck. You'll probably (have to) take less holidays than before, but you'll spend them in heaven, rather than on plain old earth, like dirt folks, as Phil calls them.

So what did you do about the teak on the command bridge?

For the last month I been sanding/varnishing our teak trim and painting*every thing above the gunnels.* Had a down pour early Sunday morning, had a leak that dripped on my wife head!* Not good!* In the hot, 80 degree summer weather the teak deck will shrink about 1/4" pulling the calking away so the first down pour is when the leaks show up.* Sept is the month I fix/refasten/seal* the front teak deck for the winter.

RE: Okay Everyone Check Her Out

Thanks everyone for all the well wishes.

Jennifer, you're not far from me; boat looks awesome, hope it all turns out perfect for you on sea trial and survey. For sure its a nerve racking time; having just done this in July, totally understand.

Hey Phil, sounds like your plate is plum full, especially if you have water drippin on the wife, not a good thing for sure.

Gosh, all these projects take considerable time, especially when you can only work on them on weekends. Teak on flybridge is still there...LOL, waiting for us to get to it. Our weather has been dry, so other projects have taken its place for the moment. There is an energy plant across the highway from our marina that belches out steam/smoke, not sure which, that has fine particulate matter that blows in the wind and lands on everyone's boat in our marina. Because of this, they pay out to boaters a monthly fee (to cover costs of a power wash, about $92) and $200 twice a year (for complete detail job). In order to get this free money, you have to show proof of ownership (USCG documentation in our case) and have the name of the boat on the transom. Its taken weeks to get our documentation, and our new vinyl name lettering arrived this past week. We have been busy trying to get the transom painted so we can affix the new name and thus submit our application to the energy plant. Then they come inspect your vessel, check documentation, etc. We are enjoying every minute we spend working on her.

RE: Okay Everyone Check Her Out

When we moored on lake union in Seattle we use to get the road film from the I-5 which was above the marina.* We had neighbor that washed and waxed his new Ocean so much he wore the gel coat off.* Cost him some big bucks to have re gel coated. *At first we washed the boat a couple time a month, now we washed it in the spring, and when we took it out.* Being we do not leave the dock much it only get washed a couple of times per year.* During the winter its 90% coved with canvas and tarps.


*
If you work and stay on the boat enough, the marina might start charging you as a live aboard.* That is what the marina did to us.* We were a live aboard before we knew we where a live aboard.***Good that you are enjoying the work as it is never ending!

RE: Okay Everyone Check Her Out

Hi Phil,

So far, we do more of a rinse off every weekend we're there. Its really not that big a deal, and frankly I don't notice this "particulate matter" all that much; but no sense in not taking advantage of the $$, if its offered, can put it in the money jar for a power washer....LOL. Well I sure hope they don't deem us liveaboards, that takes on another $200 per month (I think).

Boats are continuous work, for sure, but already I can see where fiberglas v. wood is much easier to take care of, big difference. I'm still trying to figure out why the inside walls of our old wood boat got so wet and drippy and this CHB doesn't have these issues. You suppose its better insulted?

You guys are great, and pretty damn funny ta boot.

DOM61, she's a CHB 1981, but hey, they all pretty much looks alike, at least I think so. Congrats on yours, hope you are as happy with yours, as we have been with ours.

Skipperdude: give me a break, you've got an awesome vessel, like I'm sure you'd wanna trade....big LOL

RE: Okay Everyone Check Her Out

Hello all; we're new to the forum and don't yet own a boat...though we're rapidly falling in love with a particular Monk 34 apparently built by a Finnish fellow in Boring, Oregon in about 1968 (?). It may become available within a few years. We met the wonderful*owners earlier this summer and enjoyed a spectacular 5-hour cruise and visit which convinced us to explore, with real seriousness, the possiblity of owning a boat and easing into this water*lifestyle on*BC's Sunshine coast.

Question for Patti and Rocky: Is your boat like the one we describe above? There seem to be many similarities. Would love to compare notes.
C & K in Edmonton, Alberta!
