    Pilothouse upgrade-gctid814209

    Hi Guys

    Every year I say that I am not going to spend any more serious money on the boat and every year I do it anyway. The pictures below are this years mod's.

      Wow, looks great!! I'm guessing the upgrades include the floor, cushions and captain's chair?

          YES, I replaced the carpet with Teak and Holly as well as the new Captain's Chair myself. I must throw a big Thanks to John Higgins for his advice as to what I was going to run into and mounting solutions for the Pedestal. It was a task! I removed the bench components and reinstalled them after they were redone.

              What flooring product did you use? It looks amazing! is it slippery with that gloss finish?

                Carlo, your work looks amazing as usual! I really would like to bolt my helm chair down but we board a lot through the port side PH door and bringing stuff in/out all the time it's really nice to move it out of the way. Also, I've talked with John about how difficult it is to bolt down

                I like the cream colored vinyl on the starboard side area too. I just replaced mine with same color (blue) but really wanted it to match the cream color but got over ruled by the design committee. I'm construction crew so I lost... How is that color with glare on sunny days? That was one of my concerns with going to a lighter color.

                      Really really nice! Question: it looks like you have made the vinyl panels under the helm dash removable. Does that give you access underneath the helm?

                        Flat out beautiful. I had wanted to do a change to cream on pilothouse seat coverings and a couple of local folks were quoting 2k 3k. Seemed crazy. Awesome job.

                          Hi Guys

                          Thanks for the compliments. I will try to answer several questions raised below.

                          The total cost to recover the benches was $1,200 Canadian taxes included (that's about $50.00 American!). I made new bottom plywood pieces as the original ones had holes with leather straps which were supposed to provide extra comfort. The straps stretched which actually made it uncomfortable. we also added 1/2 inch of extra foam material over the old foam .Removal was no big deal once we figured out how the pieces were fastened.

                          I have not had the boat out yet on a sunny day so I don't know how the light colour will perform.

                          I used a urethane Gloss floor varnish 5 coats.

                          The vinyl panels on the face of the lower part of the console are just a pad over the fiberglass.

                          I used 1/4" 4 X 8 sheets of Teak and Maple sole. It runs about $350.00 a sheet here. It took two sheets

                          Cheers

                            The floor is gorgeous! We have a urethane finish on our teak and holly floor. What are you going to use to clean it and maintain it? I was advised by the PO that they used water/vinegar and someone on BOC also uses that. We have a new to us boat, so that is why I am asking. Thanks!

                              We try and maintain the floor by regular vacuuming after each usage. We do occasionally wash the floor with Murphy's Oil soap and water.
