    These are some incredibly powerful photos!

    I’m saving these to my personal album to reference down the road. Not that I’m ever going to do anything so massive, but these photos can be invaluable to owners.

      Thank you! I imagine some day these will be very helpful for many of us for various reasons.

          Wow! Please give us the back story on what precipitated this dramatic renovation. What a tremendous opportunity to run wire, hose, whole house vac, A/C, heat, whatever! If you weren’t satisfied with the water volume from shower/sinks now’s your time to run larger hose. Looking forward to progress pics!

            Gregor. When you said renovation, you are not mucking around. When do you think you'll have it finished?? Your pics are most appreciated.

            Cheers

              Gregor,
              Thank you very much for the pictures! I’m looking forward to monitoring your progress. I’ve had a fleeting dream to build my own boat some day and you are doing it!

              One issue we had in some rough seas was seawater leaking around the front portholes when they were hit with waves. I subsequently learned it was due to the rough cutting of the hull and installation of the portholes themselves with minimal caulking by the factory. It will be easy for you to remedy with them exposed.

              I put a 1” wide X 1/2” bead of 3m 4200 sealing the porthole frame to the hull. If water comes thru now, we’ve got “bigger” problems!

              One other porthole issue worth addressing is the latch design. The chisel points tend to push the plexiglass windows away from the frame when tightened. I corrected this by grinding off the chisel points a bit. Now the latch presses against the frame and the plexiglass.

                As you are rebuilding, do not forget about weight distribution and vessel stability (G-M). Have fun, cannot wait to see what it will look like

                  Gregor,

                  This is a very timely post.
                  I’m just starting a major floor and sidewall mod in my salon. As well as installing a water maker.

                  Thank you for taking the time to share your photo’s.

                  Chris

                    You should do some videos and post them to you tube. That really helps. Slow pans and some detail close ups.
