Interior Redesign

Hello

I'm new to this forum. I have a bit of sailing experience mainly coastal and I have recently been given a 38' sailboat with an aluminum hull. The hull itself is in great shape as well as most of the hardware on the deck and rigging. The main issue is that the interior has seen better days and is in need of a spruce up.

I am in the beginning phases of purchasing hardware for the remodel. I was planning on using 316 SS fasteners for the cupboards, brackets etc. However, since its an interior use I was wondering if I could get away with 18-8 hardware and 304 SS brackets. Any thoughts or experience with this is much appreciated.

Cheers.

Re: Interior Redesign

wow.. that interior has seen better days. How much of the wood is salvagable with elbow grease? it doesn't look broken, just not kept bright

Re: Interior Redesign

The vast majority of the wood is in pretty good shape just needing a sand and varnish. Its mainly the cupboards and drawers which need rebuilding. I also plan on adding a few storage spaces in the bow. I'm wondering if it would be necessary to use SS316 hardware to rebuild these pieces or possibly save some money to spend on electronics by using SS304 or 18-8 hardware in the interior only.

Re: Interior Redesign

316 is only really necessary outside and not even there in many cases. It is more corrosion resistant but slightly weaker than 302/304.

Any kind of S/S will be fine below - its ability to shine is the most important thing down there.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Interior Redesign

Is that marine grade plywood on some of the built parts? Is it teak? Are those surfaces original or is it DIY? Overall it may just be cosmetic.

Re: Interior Redesign

I would be concerned about any fastenings that have to hold things to the hull or it's stringers. Was this boat a boat that was built and they never finished the interior?

Hint, you could maybe find a hurricane boat of similar size and pull the insides from that for yours. Good luck! There's a hunter 33 in my club that had rotten plywood for an interior that was never done, the new owner has done wonders with it.

Re: Interior Redesign

All the wood is original to the boat. The boat got flooded and the the affected pieces need to be taken out and replaced. Not entirely sure what kind of wood it is throughout or how it got flooded. The plywood is marine grade however. Basically I am redoing the interior bringing it back up to par. Then redoing the electrical/electronics system. The engine has been replaced and the fuel system has been fixed.

Re: Interior Redesign

That interior has pretty lines. I like the angled supports. That will really clean up nicely.

Given, as in free? Wow!

She is a pretty boat, deserves a dedicated owner.

No need for 316 inside as was said above, careful if you attach anything to hull stringers, etc. You may also want to check all things electrical.

Best of luck and keep us posted.
