Do you ever get the feeling you've been here before? :confused:



Pics are of "Tweedle Dum", my second 1984 Ciera Sunbridge. I told the upholstery shop that I bought another one. He said, "On Purpose?"
:ouch

Right at her I see Jim.
This one is going to look excellent as well.
How did you make out with the head wall removal ???
Are you going to relaminate the walls? I used a heat gun and a belt sander to remove the retro eighties wall paper from the walls.
Cheers
Michael

Yeah Mike. I already removed all the teak, nice and easy, the old wall paper and nice brown kraft lookin paper came right off.

On my first 2750 and the one, the head wall is wood screwed in from the outside making it hard as H*ll to get to. I had to make hole in the wall beside the fridge to get to them. Looks like they will be either T-nuts or nuts and bolts this time.

Yes I thought I would go ahead and laminate all this go round. I really liked he look of your flamed dark cherry looking laminate. Did you use matte finish or gloss? Here it's gonna run around $60.00 per 4x8 sheet.

I have a roll of Oatmeal colored Berber (spelling?) carpet laying around I would like to use but dang it is STIFF. On my other, I used marine style with the rubber back. It was real easy to manuver.

I have the feeling that boat is going to come out even better than the first.

Yup my laminate (Arborite brand) was not cheap but you do get what you pay for. I ordered mine from Home Depot (matte) and used three sheets. I did notice though when I went to re-install all the corner teak pieces they were real tight so I had to run them through the table saw (no big deal) to take a 1/16- 1/8 off. It was because the new laminate was thicker then the wall paper. When I had the head fiberglass floor out I also ran some line underneath through the bulkheads in case I ever needed to fish some wires at a later date. I have also installed a flat screen with pivot hardware to the cabin side of the head wall.

I really enjoy having the front walls in the V birth and I'm 6'4 1/2 and can fit in there with room to spare. I'm making a small door on the V birth cabin to give my 10 year old some privacy.
Take lots of photos, I love photos.
PS I hear a rumor that your going to install a DUO-PROP ???????????????

As for the Burber I like it but I find that I go into the cabin for beers when I'm soaking wet after snorkeling so I'm going to replace the cabin flooring only with teak and holly sole this fall
