You have an amazing yacht.

Henry, I've been on your boat. You and your wife are no slackers when it comes to maintaining your beautiful home on the water. Only dive gear this boat will likely see is a hookah rig, mask, fins, and a wetsuit.

Al, clearly you taking pride in maintaining your boat to a high standard as evident in your effort to meticulously repair the recent damage from the Hatteras. See very few on this forum that I would call common when it comes to maintaining their pride and joy.

73 pound Rocna and 66 pound Bruce are in place. The Rocna is secure but just doesn't look right in the pulpit.

Really like the strike plate on the bow. Easier to refinish than repainting the bow.

Ted ,

My Rocna looks the same, from what I get gather they are really designed to go over the top , rather than thou the pulpit. You will quickly forget about the look, as when on the water , people will really be looking at that great finish.

By the way can you tell us about the Anchor winch, make and type ?

Hi Chris, Thanks, yes very happy with how she has tuned out.

The winch is made by the Ideal Windlass Company. They've been around since the 1930s and build really solid stuff (mine weighs about 200 pounds!), service everything they have ever made, and do lots of custom winches. Mine has 2 wildcats and 2 gypsies. The gypsies turn whenever the motor runs and the wildcats can be locked in or freewheel through friction plates and the hand wheels on either end. Body is stainless steel; everything else is chrome plate bronze. This model comes in 5 sizes with mine being a number 4 I think. Several different configurations of wildcats and gypsies are offered. They also make vertical windlasses, bought one for my charter boat this year.

Hi Larry, the plates are Starboard. A slippery polymer material that is very abrasion resistant and extremely durable. It's great to work with. Easy to cut with a power saw or table saw. Can be easily shaped with a router. The plates will wear mostly at the winch end on my boat. After worn enough it can be switched around and even flipped. Have some more pics I will post shortly of stuff we have made out of Starboard.

No I haven't pulled her in Fort Myers; All the work is being done in Maryland. If I were going to pull it in Fort Myers, it would most likely be at Owl Creek Boat Works.

Projects are rapping up very nicely in the boatyard. Here are some more pics from today.

Swim platform is back on freshly painted and Kiwigripped with polished guard around the perimeter.

The stern running light has been a bone of contention for me since purchase. Poorly mounted and virtually unprotected, it's been wacked several times by the dingy outboard motor.

Finally complete, the light now sits recessed into the roof line. The dingy cradle can be seen directly behind it.

Above the light is a 1" thick Starboard shield protecting it from the outboard inadvertently striking it.

All corners nicely rounded, it's as attractive as it is functional. Starboard is extremely easy to work with and machines very well with a router or sander.

VHF antenna and the light mast are now finished.

The Shakespeare antenna upper mount didn't move the antenna to a vertical position. So a spacer made out of Starboard was fabricated to move the antenna to the proper position.

The light tower was made out of a VHF mast that was reinforced which increased the outside diameter of the mast. So a custom upper mount needed to be fabricated out of Starboard. Turned out extremely well! In case I haven't mentioned it, I really like Starboard.

Here is the light mast top with anchor light, masthead light, boat deck light, and wind weather station. Think it turned out very well.

If you have owned a boat for quite a while, you will notice the sun tends to degrade electrical cables that are exposed. These VHF cables, light cables, and other cables get brittle and crack from constant exposure to the sun. While I try to eliminate any exposed cables, there are some you have no choice on. My solution is to cover the cables with wire loom. This plastic jacket has an open seam down one side so that it can be flexed over and around a cable. I cover all my exposed cables securing the wrap with a small wire tie at each end. The loom only covers the cable and doesn't go through the sealing cable gland. The loom last for a number of years but becomes brittle from the sun and will eventually break. So the plan is to replace all of it every 5 years. Here are some pics of it from my refit:

Great stuff, Ted. Love your cable wraps. I never thought of that, but it makes me more thankful for my covered slip.

Think I'll keep it low profile. Not everyone appreciates what you spend your time and money on.

Would really like a covered slip. Few and far between in this area.

Yes, can't wait to splash her. Hopefully that will happen middle of December and then head South 1st of the year.
