    New to the BOC.

    Hello BOC members, My name is Paul, been a boater for 15 yrs up in the PNW. First couple of boats, the Canadian built boat, 26 Commander, and the second 34’ CHB tricabin trawler. Purchased a 1986 3870, The Flying Welshman 2. Two years ago. It has been a work in progress the last 2 years. Removed the carpet and laid teak and holly flooring. Replaced the both risers with stainless steel. Replace the Hurth transmissions with ZF63A. Much quieter! Started fine tuning the boat and I think I’m getting close. With the Hino 175 at 2500rpm 14kts@9gals and hour. Very happy with the performance.
    Before the interior remodel fabric seat covers. New seat covers, and the carpet removed.

          Thank you. Had to talk my wife into this one. Sold her with the promise to make it a little more woody on the inside. Which also removed the a lot of the smell. Love the twin engine redundancy and maneuverability at the dock.

              Boat looks good, nice job on the flooring. You'll find lots of help here for the 38's.

                Very nice! Welcome!
                Dale & Lucy
                I grew up on Lake Superior in MI and Lucy near the coast of CT. Love the water.
                We are in the Wilmington NC area and almost all our boating is on the ICW.
                Bought our first boat, a Glastron 175 SX in 2013. We quickly got tired of being rocked by the bigger boat wakes.
                Started to look for the new and bigger boat in 2014 and found our 2007 Bayliner 245 SB in 2015. "One Moore Time" Merc 5.0 carb model w/ Alpha 1 Gen 2.
                We keep her in drystack at Southport Marina.
                She handles the water and wakes much better and is still trailerable.
                We mostly do day and sunset cruises with some overnight and weekend trips

                  Welcome. I need to replace the laminate on our salon table, yours looks really nice. You might consider hinging your salon hatch at the starboard end and adding a 60# spring strut to assist lifting and holding it open. The other change that follows is to reshape the dip stick tube so you can check the oil from the salon.
                  We are starting our second full summer with our 3818 and love it.

                    Welcome to the club, I am a new owner of a 3818 also with many projects on the list. Your new floor looks great, how hard was it to do and what was the cost? I would love to get rid of carpet and have an easier way to check oil level on the port side engine.

                      Great job you have been doing. We just bought our 3888 in November and the interior had already been redone with honey teak floors very similar to yours. Our inside helm station has been removed for more living space. Here is a link to a 360 degree viewer of the interior: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=QVSRGcR9Re2 We are in Nanaimo and hope to see you this summer.

                        Pulling the carpet was the most difficult part. Thank goodness for teenage sons! It took about six weeks to do it all. Cutting out templates, fitting them to the floor and ensuring that everything lined up correctly. Purchased materials from EastTeak in Sultan Wa. Worked with a woman by the name of Mariam, and I think the whole project cost about $2000. Received a couple quotes over $5000.

                          Welcome to the BOC! Nice work on the floor! Trying to prioritize my projects, with budget in mind as well, but I'm definitely considering removing the carpet and going with the teak and holly flooring. In my case, I'd probably go with a product such as Nautikflor, which is a marine vinyl product. Nothing like the beauty of real wood but I'm thinking low maintenance. Your 38 is looking great! Welcome!
