Smile Here is my new Tug

Just bought this 1990 Sundowner 32. I love the boat it needs some upgrades and cosmetics. https://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/...1&d=1591147702

Hey, NICE! What are your immediate underway plans? Electronics OK, or is that part of the upgrade plan?

Wow! She's a looker! Congrats.

I've always thought Mr. Sarin nailed the deck- and pilothouse proportions perfectly for that 32ft hull.

You need some solar panels up top your saloon. Looks like a boat that give you a lot of good times.

Nice looking boat except for the wood frames around the windows. The wood pilot house doors add a certain class to the boat.
Depending on the interior lay out of the boat, you are proving you don’t need a big boat to enjoy life. SMILE

Replacing the electronics, salon windows with sliders and new genset are part of the this year upgrade plan. Solar is also in the plans but that is two years away. This morning I have a marine electrician coming to sort some electrical issues and teach me a lesson or two about the systems. Thanks everyone.

I am strongly considering painting the wood window frames on my Albin. It would look pretty plain but I was thinking of adding some painted or decal scrollwork to the frames to set them off. Maybe an accent line ending in a Fleur de Lis or some "artsy" design.

Any ideas?

Compared to our 30 footer, it looks like they added a foot of length to the pilothouse (doors wider, aft side window bigger) and a foot to the saloon.

Hope yours builds a huge bank of memories like ours has
