Hi, Rory, Bob,
Are you working on a Luders 36 sloop (not clipper)? My wife and I are have recently purchased one would love to correspond with others 'in the same boat' so to speak.
Renovating the icebox/wetlocker to convert it to pantry space:
Getting fiberglass and foam out has been a bear as we live aboard and are trying to minimize the amount of dust in the rest of the cabin. We've found the wet locker and its port side counterpart to be extremely difficult to access comfortably, and are looking for ideas on how to more efficiently and comfortably use the space.
Repairing cable steering:
Reattaching sheave to hull and figuring out how to reeve the missing cable. If you have pictures of the riven cable on the drum at the base of the pedestal or know how the cable is to be rove we'd love to know. We're assuming from the size of the groove that the cable is supposed to be 5/16" 7x19 SS.
Varnishing exterior brightwork:
We're sanding down the coamings, hatches hand/toerails to bare wood and varnishing them with Epifanes.
