No more bird poop on top of my boat - gullsweep installed. This is easy to remove and can be folded for storage. It rotates with really minimum wind preventing gulls to land.

Installed today 4th battery. Now there is one start battery and three batteries on the other circuit supporting fridge, heater, TV, stereo etc.

New istallation, that does not consume any battery is cabin ventilation. This is solar powered fan that operates standalone. It is equipped with small battery (charged by solar panel) that enables it operating also after sun has gone down. Basically it works all the time.

There is never enough storage space. But now there is more than before. Today added three hatches taking into use the unused space that boat offers.

1. Hatch to access side compartment that is located on top of water heater. There is a lot of space there. Still I need to install basket inside there as soon as I found right size.

2. Hatch to access side compartment below engine control handle and beside captains seat. In this area there are some electric wiring and engine control cables on the top, but below those tehre is a lot of space to use.

3.Hatch to access small space under the L-seat. This can be used for some tools and oil etc bottles.

It rests on the fenders still :thumb

I have to figure out something before taking fenders into use ;) OK, I admit, not fully completed project, sorry about that. Table is bought from local marine store.

Technical maintenance completed except new spark plugs. I started with the first plug and noticed that plugs sold to me are different than current ones. :eek:

Marine store asked me engine type (Mercruiser 5,7) and model year (1994). However this is what I got. :mad: Need to go back and ask for right ones. Or can it be that those are compatible ?

Down: current plug type
Up: What I got

It looks good. You can get some small bimini tubing to make it independant of the fenders because I'm sure you'll have those deployed when you're grilling. Are you going to put some oil on the table. If so, the rosewood oil I used really makes the wood look great. I also coated with a preconditioner before the oil. The conditioner opens the grain to accept a more even coating of oil. Keep up the nice work.

I saw your post with table supports. Great job there, I will copy the supports as well. I plan to make also some fixed support in the storage compartment to hold the table while underway.

Propably it would be good idea to oil the table and use some preconditioner as well. I think it will resist water better and remain good for longer period of time.

Yep, table, hinges and bicycle handlebar :D bought from Biltema. The 22mm plastic holders are from K-rauta, since there was no right size in Biltema.

They are selling much more fancy tables in Maritim (with compass logo in the middle) but price is 5 times more... This became ok after some teak oil treatment.

Rear storage comnpartment organized. Everything used to be in the bottom (and nothing could be found). I built some plywood shelves and installed hooks to organize the ropes and stuff.

I also made cockpit cover. It used to be lot of work to install 4 piece canopy every time comind back to dock. Cockpit cover should be much less job. My sewing skills were not the best (I had some help with the upholstery before), but somehow managed to do it:

WOW :eek: Seems that those guys did not secure the boat at all on tailer.

Yep, mine splashed securely. This time transport by professional instead of my single axle trailer...

Yes, very easy. Remove center part of the old wheel by opening three screws behing the wheel. Open big nut holding the wheel. Removing wheel may require some force if stuck.

Yes, voltage needed. If your TV does not provide 5v voltage option to antenna connection, you need triax voltage box that takes 12v and feeds 5v to antenna.
I have been very happy about the performance of this antenna. Verkkokauppa.com is one place to buy it.
