Thanks for the replies everyone.

The rub rail is on but not very good. I think I may just get a new one and glue it on or however it attaches.

I will check the life line stantions for flexing and see if I can stiffen the bases up a bit. Replating them may be the best idea, any idea of the cost for 4 bases getting replated?

I do plan on rewiring the whole boat but I was thinking about waiting to do that since I could drill holes and run the wires through whatever plywood "furniture" I add. Or is there somehting I am not thinking about?

SD- Should I go ahead and remove the deck hardware even though it may a month or so before I get around to painting the topsides? One thing I am worried about it the air temperature. I was thinking maybe I should do the hull and topsides while it was still warm then wait for the cabin because I could heat it up in there with a small electric heater. Or is there somehting I am not thinking of here?

Randy- THat is a good point but one reason I bought this boat was to learn how fix/redo/paint a sailboat. So I think I will do whatever needs doing just to learn how to do it.

I think I may have figured out the head placement problem but it just will not be to "private". To me that is not that big of a deal but this is a boat to sell, are other people more concerned about pirvacy?

I am heading down the other boat today and staying for the weekend. I will be back on the reply Sunday.

Thanks everyone for all of your time!

Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......
