Transformation Continues

And the work goes on.

Roof is re-skinned, bad spots are repaired, stripping the rails is progressing quite nicely.

Installed a new N2k network and cleaned up the last of the wiring mess.

This weekend is fill all the scene holes and seal everything, sand and prepare for epoxy and fiberglass.

Next is paint the house and bulwarks.

Epoxy then cloth and two more coats of epoxy followed by a sturdy epoxy paint. Did I mention sanding? Lots and lots of sanding. 😷

Bob,
Instead of a 32' she looks like a 38' boat now.
Is this your permanent moorage? I'd want more of an "eve" on the roof if it was to be in open moorage.

Transformation Continues

Eric,

We started out with a 2" overhang and it just looked odd. Cut it back to an inch and it still looked strange. Now it's 3/4" with a 1/4" trim piece and it looks right.

She's a boathouse girl now.

Bob - When bridge was aboard, did you pilot from or otherwise use it much/at-all?

Art,

We used it all the time and it was our preferred spot to drive from, weather permitting. Now we have a great sundeck and a place to stow our kayaks.
