Anyway, many other projects are now coming together. I am checking off items from my list quickly now, which is making me feel better.
The 3 sliding doors have now been primed with two-part high-build epoxy primer. They received 4 coats of paint this afternoon and will now need to be sanded smooth in preparation for the final/finish epoxy coat.
|Sal getting ready to prime the sliding doors.|
|Sal applying the first coat of high-build primer. The doors got 4 coats.|
|4 coats of primer later. Hey they are white again!|
|Ready to paint, finally. I bet I spent at least 30 hours getting this ready.|
|Cracks in the fiberglass removed and filled with grey epoxy filler.|
|Closeup of the repair job.|
|I have cut my own wood plugs out of a nice block of teak.|
|Two sizes of wood plug installed. They need to be trimmed and sanded flush.|
We are having a new swim step made for the boat. The existing one is not deep enough. With the transom overhang you really only have a little over 12" to walk on. So we are extending it another 12", which will double the walking room. Also, it will be wider at the sides than it is in the middle. Our transom has quite a curve to it and there is no reason to duplicate this curve exactly at the outside edge of the swim step The guys were over last night to make a template for the new swim step It will be fiberglass, not teak like we have now. This should make it maintenance free!
|Our swim step when we bought the boat. Still looking pretty good.|
|Our swim step now. Not looking so good.|
|What our new step will look like. Wider at the sides|
than in the middle. Pop-up cleats. Fiberglass.
And best of all: Maintenance Free!
