bluewater33 is on a distinguished road
I sailed a Cal 39' from Panama to Australia last year via a string of South Pacific islands. It was the adventure of a lifetime and 'Dagmar' was the perfect boat to make the crossing with, not only does she sail well but she is also a comfortable and trusty home. Now in Australia I am looking to do some work on her (mainly cosmetic) and sell her. I guess seeing as the boats are no longer being made, neither are the parts. My main concern is the ceiling in the main saloon- it is looking very shabby but I am not sure what to do with it short of ripping it all out. It is made of a type of vinyl, does anyone know if there is some paint I can use on it? Do other owners have the same type of material on their ceilings?
Cheers.
