I'm embarassed to even talk about my piddly little projects anymore. Undertaking such a reconstruction project as yours is one thing, but you're actually seeing it through! Amazing work!

No kidding, Larry! I was planning to reattach my new Hopcar cleats with duct tape, but now I'm thinking I should use REAL machine screws. OCD really raises the bar a bit.

Damn you, OCD!!

Thanks guys! Neither one of you are slouches when it comes to projects. I can't wait for this to be done. I'm going to be like a kid on Christmas Day when she is back in the water. Won't know what to play with first.

Doors locked; ventilators are running; boat is masked off except for inside the bow and anchor pulpit. Looks like painting today.

This was the second section. Pilothouse roof and the veranda were first. Five more sections to go. Sean will be painting about every third day now.

Stunning. Hopefully most mechanicals are done and from here forward you are installing. Not removing to repair. This has got to be one of the most thorough and professionally done marine rebuilds ever taken on!!

Thanks! Most everything is done. Everything on the outside will need to be reinstalled and hooked up. Inside stuff is down to minor punch list completions and the occasional new trinket like a stand alone engine hour meter. Looking forward to sea trials and the resulting punch list.

Funny thing, if you look inside, other than the pilothouse displays and the engine room, very little of what you see has changed. It's everything mechanical under the floor and behind the walls that's different. For most it will be hard to see what took so long.

I'd like to thank you for this thread, and the way you're highlighting that what ever boat you own its the pleasure of boat ownership that counts, not how new or expensive your toy is.

Is it worth doing up an old design; definitely! When you consider how much depreciation there is on a new boat it would be totally impossible to equal that on a restoration, however hard you tried; and you won't get the warm glow of knowing you've revitalised an old hull to live on for many decades more.

In totally get what you're doing, having built my own boat from scratch.

Fantastic effort; beautiful result.

I have been following what you have done on William. The quality of care you give William is far beyond "work boat"! This definitely speaks to pride of ownership and respect for your vessel. Appreciate your support!

This is the dream coming true. The once in a lifetime dream. I have really enjoyed doing this, but could never muster the energy to do it again. Appreciate your support!

Yes, this is my new boat. It's great to find a vessel and be able to cruise it a little before heading into a project of this magnitude. This is as close to getting a custom built boat as I will ever get. I tend to keep boats and vehicles a long time. Hoping this will be the one and only for as long as I cruise. Thanks for watching!

Time to head to the boat yard. Have some bits to install today while Sean is prepping for tomorrows painting.

Ted

Short day in the boat yard today. Thought we were on an every third day paint schedule, but it appears that it's every other day for the top side shoots. So didn't get a whole lot done before paint time at 1 pm.

Only accomplished project for today was to install a redundant mechanical hour meter to back up the one in the engines computer that views as part of the digital display. For less than $30 including shipping, I thought it was a good investment.

Today"s paint project was all 4 sides of the pilothouse. Here it is ready to be painted. No pics of process or results as I could put my time to better use else where. Actually, the paint vapors are pretty caustic and I want to live to enjoy the boat.

Somethings in the building are simple and low tech. The ventilation and intake air filtration systems are a good example. The ventilation is two 3' diameter fans at one end of the building. When they are on, closing the door requires some effort.

The air intake filtration is a screen door that sits in the utility door frame, where a screen door would go.

The filtration media is roll HVAC air filter material that is held to the screen door with wood strips and screws. When it starts to show signs of dust and dirt, the media is replaced. When ventilating is done, lift the screen door out, set it inside, and close the utility door. Pretty low tech, but extremely effective.

Where are you having this done, OCD? I love the simplicity. California would have a field day with that setup. Maybe that's why we have so little affordable service here.

The boat yard is Scott's Cove Marina in Chance, Maryland. It's in a less traveled area about 15 miles above Crisfield, MD. Marina is primarily a Chesapeake Bay watermans marina. It's only a matter of time before the nanny state Nazis regulate them out of business.
