I think a 1979 would be a Mk 1 not a Mk 2

Which NextGen genny is that, 3.5 or 5.5? I have the 3.5 and with Micro-Air easy starts on my 10KBtu Dometic marine AC and my 13.5 KBtu rooftop, I can run them both. Even with just one AC, the Easy Start makes it so much easier on all the equipment,

It is the 3.5. Runs great in its new location. Still have to finish up wiring it through a transfer switch. Looking forward to power panel day! One project at a time. Right now we are building our new sofa. Lots of wood work, sewing and cussing...

Keep plugging away. Little bit by little bit and it will get done and you will have a great boat. I love the lines of the MS 34.

That is Mitch, our red healer/Jack Russel mix . He is almost a year old now and always wants to be a part of the process.

What flooring did you use and if the laminate strips how many sq. feet did you need?
And what did you use for the trim around the hatches ? That's on my project list too. Looking good !!

It is a vinyl flooring rated as 100% water proof. We used approx 125 square feet (5 boxes) with a few planks to spare. The trim is 1Ē angle 1/16Ē thick aluminum.

So we got some good old used furniture for the back deck. Of course after some cleaning the paint and off. A few coats of Krylon did the trick!

1979 Mainship II restoration

Working on some boat projects, you all know how they stack up!

Built a new set of stairs for the dock (wife is short). Wife is painting them as I type.

I just replaced both of my bilge pumps. What a PITA working way down in the bilge. Didnít do my back any good but had to be done.

They are not fun to get to! Fortunately the 3700 is installed in the FWD bilge access hatch. The hope is that it is never needed. If water reaches that float switch the high bilge water alarm also sounds.

Yes, but was it made in 1979. I dont think the MKI and MKII overlapped in manufacture. The MarkII was AFTER the Mark I
