I knew sombody'd notice**** ....but how do you make a sleeping bag? Yea I know** ..roll it up? Chris was not w me on that trip* ..may have made a difference. I was cruising along getting bored* ..picked up the camera and shot some pics. Much has been refinished including the aft door as well. The galley stove still has,nt been hooked up though. You will notice I've got painted plywood decks inside the cabin, they need more paint and the're going to stay painted. I'd love to turn that seetee into a small dinette as well. Got several to many projects planned but may just go cruising next year and do some things in port along the way.

Eric, if you do, make sure you can still stretch out on the settee as well.* My wife and I regard that as one of the key features of a good cruiser.* A place for both of us to stretch out to snooze or read,* in the saloon (not salon note - we are not doing our hair), so you don't have to go below to the sleeping cabin to rest during the day.* Easier to keep an eye on what's going on around one as well, and nearer the nibblies and drinks.* And if you want to avoids fights, it's best to have two stretch-out places.* We would not buy a boat that did not have that feature.* Actually, I tend to see a purpose built dinette, where there is only really room to sit upright at it as a waste of space, but that's just me.

Eric,
She was an odd bird 1985 boat but repowered in '87 with the Lehman, don't know why. She would cruise at 13 knots and at that speed she road pretty flat even without trim tabs. Loud as hell with that four banger under your feat but proper insulation would have helped. I might very well find another one and have a go at her again. They're a great poor man's picnic boats.

Peter,
Good to see a "Bronco Bugle" on the table and then the Glasscraft cattledog, that could become a collectors item.
Hangin out to get home and make some progress on the engine swap.

Great pics Darren. Your boat really is a sister-ship to mine, only you have more natural timber outside than Lotus, and the flybridge is quite different. She looks really nice. However, you would not regret it if you go ahead and do that canopy extension, like we did, it just completes the boat.

RE: Photo Gallery - All Members Boats

Hi Peter.* Our boats are almost twins!* Yes, lots of timber on the exterior of Moon Dance, practically a forest.* The finish is really beginning to look bad as she's been out of her covered slip for 3 years now.* I was considering just letting the finish come off the teak and going natural, but everyone tells me that's a bad idea.* I do think that properly finished teak is beautiful, but, with the limited time I have available to do anything with the boat I can't work up the enthusiasm to expend that time in refinishing teak.*

Would it be sacrilege to just paint it?

Hobo had lots of exposed teak.* The exterior pilot house doors,*eye brow, grab handles, name boards*and and trim strips are teak.* They have been painted with a one part polyurethane.* We still have*the fly bridge and stairs, cockpit doors and cap rails finished in either varnish or Cetol.* We think we are pretty close to striking the balance between the exposed teak and the areas that have been painted.**So*my vote would be to go ahead and use some paint.*

Some people who have painted their exterior teak seal the wood with varnish first.* This allows the future removal of the paint*without having to sand to far into the grain if the they or the new owners every want to go back to varnish.

Darrel, I am about to paint the toerails and cap rails on flybridge also. They get the most UV exposure and with all the posts to mask around, it's a real pita to mask and get out the Cetol. The handrails, sliding doors, rear hatch and fwd doghouse will remain teak, but with sunbrella covers on the latter two. I saw a MT 40 a few weeks back that had the toerails painted white and you'd never have thought they were ever teak.

RE: Photo Gallery - All Members Boats

Darrell, if you look back to my avatar, reproduced below enlargeable, you will see the previous owner did what you are contemplating. It looks ok, but 'very white", (according to PhilFill, anyway). My comment on this elsewhere is that as it was done before I bought it , I don't grieve over it, and it is easier to look after, but does not look as good as teak - well-maintained, which is the relevant statement. However, I recently had to have the stern gunwhale capping replaced because damp had penetrated the seal on the timber and water trapped under the paint rotted it away. So, the message is, if you do paint it, do seal it with a 2 pack wood preserver, (eg Everdure - almost looks like a varnish finish), as Larry mentioned, then thoroughly sand and undercoat, several coats may be best, then a suitable number of top coats. But get an opinion from a timber boat expert re the above.
