Excellent work. Are you going to put a door on the washer compartment?

We got a chance to see Baloo’s boat last night . They’ve done a great job with this boat. They’ve made some huge improvements. Keep up the good work Baloo.

Are you going to put vents in the doors so when you are drying it can get enough air? They are looking good.

The cabinet is vented through the side. I wanted to keep the doors solid.

That is beautiful work you're doing. You're saving yourself so many $$ as opposed to hiring out the labor and getting exactly what you envisioned. What do you estimate the new appliance and lower helm cabinet weighs? Did you find it caused a starboard list or was it not enough to worry about? I know our 34 is surprisingly forgiving with uneven weight distribution but I to try to make a conscious effort when adding and removing heavier stuff like we've done. So far we're keeping an even keel!

Thanks! All together with the washing machine it added about 225 pounds to that side. The starboard list was caused from the starboard fuel tank being full and the port was at 1/4 full. To offset the new washer/helm I moved the water tank from the center to the starboard side where the water heater was, and the water heater under the counter in the kitchen. Then the aft A/C unit moved from the starboard side to the port side under the couch. Once all the fuel and water tanks are full I will adjust level with the battery locations. In the end the goal is to get her level, but that is always a thought when installing things.

You're making me look bad. Had my boat for 3 years and haven't done 1/4 as much.

Seriously great work and wish I had your sewing skills.

My wife and I have put some serious time in to get so much done. The boat is an hour from our home, so we plan and research everything. Every weekend and several nights a week have really helped make progress. I appreciate all the comments, it keeps us going!

I had finished sanding the doors on the washer/dryer cabinet and when I disconnected the air hose from the compressor it popped back and hit the window. What a day!

Donít you hate it when you take a step forward and then take 2 backwards? Oh well it is just time and money. But it looks good now.
