Nice work. Was this boat originally named the Mischief?

Two comments: the first I noticed that you put your rudder zincs in the middle of the rudder, right in propwash, you "may" get some vibration in the helm/boat/rudder. I did. I put the anode(s) on the bottom edge.

The second is the city water intake is very close to the waterline, make sure the interior hoses are seriously bulletproof, it could fail and flood you...

Otherwise it looks really good, you are doing great work and very energetic!

Proud Mary, how is the renovation going? I enjoy the pictures. I have a Prairie 29 (hull # 7) and the windows are very crazed and need replacing. I notice that you replaced the windows. Can you tell me where you got them and the material that was used?

We recently replaced all four ports lights with Beckson 4” x 10” port lights as they were an identical match.
We also replaced the two 30A power connections as the old ones had signs of arcing and corrosion.

Before I installed the plywood panels I routed the wainscoting that will go over the plywood.

Thank you for the advice. I will take heed.

I cut out and painted the supports for the HVAC that will go in the utility closet.

I removed the rotted boards from the head and cut out two new boards. It was miserable sanding the hull down to the bilge prepping for fiberglass and epoxy.

Glued the wainscoting to the utility closet plywood. We think it looks good.

After hours of frustration and unintentional yoga positions I was able to install a new shower pan drain with elbow connector, clamps and drain hose.

Today was thru-hull installation day. I installed the grated engine intake, the grated HVAC intake, the toilet intake and the waste water thru-hull even though it will probably never be used.

I hope that waste thru-hull is on the oposite side of the other thru-hulls. It would suck to open a plugged strainer and find well used TP inside.
