I love how you are NOT wasting any time on these projects! Looks like yours is getting painted same time as mine is.

Erik, knowing the magic Bruce and his guys can perform, I can say now she is going to look really terrific - better than new even - when he is done with her.

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

Erik, if you don't mind me asking, how much does the paint job work out to be. we are thinking of getting some major work done on our IG 36 and have been advised we would be better off taking it up to the Gold Coast because of the differential in the costs between Sydney and Qld, despite the 800k/m round trip.

Andy
That's nearly like how long is a piece of string.
What work do you require to be done paint wise.
Complete sand back and preparation.
Sand down and you do the prep.
My last paint job on Tidahapah...Lawries Marina Mooloolaba.

<a href="http://www.ashbyboatbuilders.com.au/">http://www.ashbyboatbuilders.com.au/
</a>Done by Adam Ashby cost me 7K
Remember this was a timber boat so was not going to last 15 years so work and prep was done in accordance with requirements.
Fiberglass boat done in Awlgrip or Stirling or equiv by Int would probably be around 25k hull and superstructure.
36' probably less.
Not sure what Gold Coast marina costs would be but usually a bit more than up here.
We are only a couple hrs steaming north of GC.
Any how just to give you some idea.

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

Erik,* She looks good.

Interesting modification you have done with the anchor platform.

Did she come with the opening in the bow?

Is that common in your area?

What are the advantages?

Can't wait to see the finshed images.

Hi John,No I don't think it's common .... but as she didn't have an proper electric winch, we wanted to put one one, the anchor went over a high sitting bowsprit and a Samson post it was hard to put one in. We needed to build a proper anchor well .... so we decided to build the well, put the platform straight on the deck, and make a hole in the bow .... was scary ... I hope it works and that I don't get much water in it through there .....

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

Erik,* That is a gutzy alteration.* I doubt if you will ship much water your bow should be pretty bouyant.

You may have hit upon a new design idea.*

When you start using it,* let us know how you like it.

Do you boat in your area all year round?

If I ever die and come back to earth as an old worn out trawler in need of a new lease on life, I hope Erik is my owner!!!

Awesome work.

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

Thanks for the info Ben, I was thinking of a paint job in the medium term as well as cutting out the original fuel tanks, which I anticipate to be a truly horrible job, very labour intensive.By the way anyone know the distance by sea from Sydney to your part of the world?

Erik, as John said, you may have just come up with the first major design change to the Clipper(CHB) in 30 odd years. Does anyone know of a trawler style boat that incorporates the anchor through the bow? Great stuff, following your project with interest.

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

Andy,
Sydney to Gold Coast seaway is approx 550 miles.
I will check on my plotter when I get back to the boat on the weekend.
Lots of good drop in spots on the way north also.
Must do the trip myself one day and explore the Clarence River.

RE: The start of a nice project (clipper 30ft)

Andy, when I had the first quote from the same paint shop Erik is having his done by, due to a misunderstanding, he quoted for the whole vessel, top to bottom, as it were, and it was by memory some $17-18k. When he revised it to just the hull from boot top, (that's from the antifoul line), to the gunwhale, it was $7400. Does that help?
