Mr RT, the window frames are polished aluminum. The snaps are on the fg alongside. There are new covers on board since these photos were taken but we used the original snap positions.

Mr B, thank you for that info. I had never seen it before. At the marina all the cleaning boys use buff and wax. I do already have a stubborn soot stain that has been difficult to remove. I will give the Awlgrip product a try.

Yes, you do wax some of their other products, like Awlcraft, and you wax Alexseal. With any of them I suggest taking their maintenance suggestions seriously. We even go so far as using their products. We use Awlwash and Awlcare.

On Alexseal we use the products they recommend.

http://www.alexseal.com/docs/general...aintenance.pdf

On old inherited paint jobs when you don't know the paint or what treatment has been previously used, you're in no man's land and do what it appears needs to be done. However, on a newly painted boats I always recommend following the paint manufacturer's guidelines.

At the aft end of the house is an area I call the back porch. The floor is laid with a cork floor that is caulked between strips. At some point a PO had coated it with a sealer of some type. The sealer was disintegrating and the area looked bad. I thought about pulling it up and replacing it with Plasteak or similar. After eraser have I found the cork stuff was distributed by Marquip in Florida so I called them up. He told me that the stuff should last forever and did not need to be coated. Early in it production some owners had no believed in its longevity and had used sealants. He told me to sand it with 80 grit and it would be fine. He also told me to wash it occasionally with OxyClean and a stiff brush and it comes up nicely.

I thought the back porch was a waste of space because it wasn't well protected and got wet when it rained, meaning that I couldn't put nice comfortable furniture out there. My solution was to enclose it in canvas and eisenglass.

I think it improves the lines of the boat, don't you?

Sorry for some of the nonsensical wording. Autocorrect on my iPad has some strange ideas about what I am trying to say.

Yes Awlgrip. Awlcare yields poor results and mediocre protection, IMO. Guess if you want to do it 6 times a year it's ok. Much happier with the Collonite wax. Been using Collonite for 10 years on the charter boat with no adverse effects. When you put the new coat on the old coat is removed.

I've heard very good things about Collonite wash and wax, know some highly rated detailers who use it. Our boat with Awlgrip gets far different use than your charter boat, but has held up nicely, looks like new.

In an average 4 month season, the charter boat can get washed 60+ times. The Awlcare didn't hold up to repeated washings. The Collonite is still there the following spring after sitting outside all winter.

Next thing on my list was the interior. The master cabin, while huge by boat standards,was extremely dated. Plus it was the only place on the boat that emanated a musty smell. I didn't know if is was coming from the head or the carpet or the mattress and bedding or wood paneling below the portholes or all of the above. The main visual element of the cabin was the mirrored headboard that was painted with Chinese ribbons and lotus flowers. Plus the silvering on the back was peeling off.

The cabin was a gut job. I don't have many before pics, just what was in the surveyors report. But you can't smell photographs so they don't tell the whole story. Here is how it went:

We took the template to Houston Mattress Mfg to have a custom mattress made. The new mattress has a memory foam top and is a temporpedic type base. It's bigger than a queen and other than the taper it is nearly a full size king. We use king size linens and pillows.

Yep, I'll go with the non-skid rather then teak ....... Yes, we all know the appeal and tradition of teak but for those of us that have cleaned it - give me non-skid ..........

This is a standard vanity counter top from the boat depot. It was rectangular but due to proximity to the head we needed to round out a corner of make sufficient room to sit. No problem, using a sawzall the corner was cut. But the base material was a white chalky porcelain. So the entire edge was taped off and sprayed with Awlgrip. Yup, that's right, that edge is Awlgrip paint. Who wouldathunkit.

In a previous life I had laid a custom made tartan/plaid carpet in my den in the house. I had kept the off cuts for about 15 years for reasons that probably say something about my sanity, or lack of it. Anyway, given the theme of 'Scot Free' I decided to haul it out and see what I could do with it.

Trying to get the pattern to match was a trial given I only had a few pieces to work with. Using the original carpet as a template I managed to put it together with only a few square inches left over.

I have a video if the completed area but haven't figured out to upload it to TF yet. So while I'm figuring that out, we will move on to another project.

It was not in my plan to do anything with the salon floor. It has a cream colored sculptured carpet that was probably expensive to install. I had steam cleaned it after I got the boat and trout it looked good. Next to it was the galley with marble tile floor. Then it led into the pilot house which has the cork floor. Hmmm.

On a whim I pulled out all the furniture and vacuumed the area. I didn't like the look of it.
