Iím just wrapping up a complete retrofit on a krogen 54. How are the other components of the boat, here are a few things Iíd consider before spending any time/money on the looks part.
1. All seacocks accessible and functioning?
2. All below waterline hoses in good condition?
3. State of charging system, battery banks and inverter?
4. What engine/engines are you running? Have you done full tests on them, do they reach rated rpm, etc.
5. Genset in good working order?
6. Hydraulic system in good condition and leak free? Especially steering components.
7. Windows in good condition, any major leaks, etc.

Would love you to keep us updated as Iím just moving onto a galley retrofit as my last project... for this year

This is seriously good advice!
All ships systems should be in tip top condition before aesthetics are even contemplated.
I have seen projects crumble after many thousands of dollars were already wasted on all the wrong things.
Don't let it happen to you!

Curious why you removed the dry stack? Did it take up too much room on its way up to fresh air? There must have been a sizable box/shaft running up the middle of your boat!

The boats at CSR,the 8v92 run well, the steering is stiff, Iíll check the iron filter and if thatís not the issue Iíll put electronic controls on it,the drystack was removed because it ate up so much space in the salon&bridgr and it was shot, going with and underwater system, the teak decks were screwed down around the borders only and glue down thru out the boat so there was dryrot in the side overhangs, the teak decks had been previously removed on the bridge and the rest of the decks are in nice shape on the boat ,the wings are being rebuilt and there is some dryrot repairs on the Bollards , probably going to eliminate the aft Bollards and build and aluminum cap with seating incorporated and a port and starboard transom entrance, I might notch into the transom and aft deck and incorporate 3 steps on each side...anybody know if I can modify and hinge one of these old davits?woukd be nice to get it down lower

That’s a heck of a project, looking forward to seeing it come along, been really happy with CSR, the wood worker doing my new interior window trim is doing an awesome job, will end up costing the same amount as the windows but will look brilliant!

@Mattie69 - If there is no head on the Flybridge deck, and you like to run at night from the Flybridge rather than the pilothouse, one thought would be to add a sink at about waist height.

One's better half standing a night watch might think that the sink should be at a lower height. Just saying.

Very good point @dwhatty

@Mattie69 My dream upgrades beyond the aforementioned punch list are:

* Increase Inverter Size to minimize generator run time (run convection oven)

* Extend Swim Platform and carry the tender on the platform. Launch single handed with a

* Upgrade to Simrad 4G Radar with Forward Scan and side scan

* Sound Proof Engine room with more modern materials

* Fuel transfer system that will provide fuel positive pressure to main engine so that engine does not have to be bled. The secondary 12 volt pump installation also serves as fuel lift pump in case of mechanical fuel lift pump failure. (I have replaced two mechanical lift pumps due to failure, once while underway).

* Engine start switch in engine room on a cord to be able to crank engine and bled injectors while single handing.
