Hi Healhustler - you replacing windows through your own hard work or having a yard do it? I'm doing similar in the Marine Trader this spring, but have a guy doing it. Wondering how hard it is...

Spring projects:

1. Build easily/readily available “on the hook” pressure powered wash down system (washes previously accomplished at dock or by a line fastened drop-bucket while out and about):

Recently purchased 12V – 9A – 6.5 gpm Jabsco Water Puppy self prime pump w/ needed attachments. Already have a real cool, small, hand-held 120V pressure washer that pumps water up to 110 psi. I’m bolting Jabsco pump inside a secure yet vented but leak proof clear plastic box that is fastened upon a small, thick/rigid plastic base-plate. When in use I plan to firmly attach this unit onto swim step’s far port side, right up next to transom (will have stud and wing nut slightly protruding though swim step at edge of transom, to fit through hole in plastic base plate). When not in use will store pump, pressure washer, and other apparatus under starboard bridge seat. 12V wire with waterproof end plug and inline switch will come out from Water Puppy box to connect to lead-plug directly connected to batteries that will be coming out of transom next to white center running light. 50’ Re-coil hose to use any place on our 34’ Tolly and genset powering the 120V pressure washer whenever it needs to be used for wash down. That’s my plan for an often kept-clean boat in fresh water.

2. Strip down superstructure’s gel coat oxidation and buff her back up to full/lasting shine with professional grade strip/shine pastes/fluids and brand new 120V, adjustable rpm buffing machine.


Yea Tolly! – Art

Also plan to replace anodes this summer during one of my many under-boat dives for keeping bottom and all apparatus clean.

We recently spent couple days aboard getting her ready for 2013 seasons; she’d sat dormant in covered slip for just three months. No special interior projects planned... just clean up / check up... then MUCH Play.


Here’s wishing a great 2013 for all boaters!

well, its like this ...

I could have bought a new to me boat, but instead I/we:
re-powered with a 0 hour merc 350 instead of the old Ford. I got the merc from a nice guy who wanted to drop a diesel into his Tolly 26;
I broke the merc down and sent the long block off to S & J in Spokane for a re-manufacture
removed the original fuel tanks
replaced with new plastic fuel tanks;
cleaned, wiped, sanded, primed and painted the entire bilge beneath the cockpit;
sent the velvet drive out for a complete redo;
had all running gear removed and refastened;
new trim tabs;
new prop;
remachined the shaft log;
new thru hull exhausts;
new (to me) teak swim step from an ancient Owens;
new wiring;
new battery switch;
new fuses/box;
new instruments and panel;
Refastened bow rail;
removed old water tanks(not yet replaced);
sanded to bare wood and refinished all cockpit wood; and,
new bottom paint
Zodiac tender with Honda 2hp
But I still have a 48 year old tolly with window leaks when it rains hard
Last week I picked up a Ryobi 2200 Gennie/Inverter for cheap so I can use the microwave with impunity to heat baby food while on the hook.

Hi Ben: I'm up here in Stuart, FL on the hard and doing shaft seal, bottom paint, removing a thru-hull in one area and installing another in another area. Trimming out the pilothouse is underway, deck sealing and painting will start next week, and then the windows is something I'll deal with at home. I'm told they are a _ _ tch with the glue the mfg. used. If it's anything like the stuff they used on the pilothouse roof, I'm in trouble. I'll let you know when I get to it, but it probably won't be in the next two weeks.

My neighbour who is even more of a glass-half-empty guy than I am says its all going to blow off in the first big windstorm. Time will tell. 690 watts and I haven't added up all the bills yet but it's well under $3 per watt for everything. I'm pretty sure its over $2 but maybe not by much.

I'm just working through maintenance and minor repairs this year. It's nice to not have a huge project list.

One of my incandecent bulb spreader lights went out last trip so I removed them and installed two LED light fixtures. While I had a ladder in place I swapped out the anchor light bulb for an LED as well. "Cetoled" teak on the handrails, "hatband and flybridge. Still have some small teak peices I'll do on the next trip.

You've been busy, HH. I'm surprised you have time to enjoy your boat. Got any pictures of the work?

So far this winter I've.......
1. scrubed and cleaned the bilge
2. painted the entire bilge
3. cut the top off of the hvac tunnel on top of the boat and dug all the nasty out, glassed in some 9# woven so any condensate will drain out of the vents and glassed all that back
4. repaired some piling damage to the roof. Low tide ripped a 4' section of the overhang off.
5. cleaned and primed the starboard motor
6. Pulled the transmission to rebuild it
7. Took the transmission pump in to find out that it was the problem with the tranmission
8. Oil pump is still in the shop because I blew my wad on the trani.....
9. Is it spring yet?????

So much for retirement. KJ

Wow that's nice looking parquet under there! That's got to be a rewarding project.
