October '10 progress

The cabin top and cockpit areas are done, 99%! Still have to mount the Edson pods for autopilot and anchor windlass. I used Durabak Cream for non-skid and Alexseal Eggshell for topcoat. Installed 8x8 Bomar hatches in each head. Mounted the winches and hardware. Had our glass company cut 3/8 bronze tinted lexan for the companionway. Installed a teak 34 inch wheel, Ebay buy. Going to cut in 2 coaming boxes for storage, on order.

Below the waterline is done! fixed all blisters, removed original bronze seacocks. Patched most of them, installed Marelon seacocks, and a raw water intake manifold. Mediablasted the bottom, faired the hull and put 5 coats of 2000E on, 10 gallons. Paint the hull spring 2011, electronics, rigging...

Winterinzing in the next week or 2. Covering for winter.
