sailorjim-

I have looked at this type of solution and is probably where I'm headed. After all, the only thing that transpires down below is the odd poker game now and then...and looking at the clean (but rough) surface overhead is still better than looking at the 20 plus year old mildewed carpeted headliner!!

Any truth to the rumor of another boat turning up crewless down your way? What is a good Ozzie online news source?

Cheers!

Starwindy, don't know your circumstances but you might want to think about scrub-ability (i.e., mold & mildew) - will textured paint be difficult or impossible to battle mold?

I'm curious about the crewless cat too!

Further to my PM if you only use the interior on rare occasions then you are probably best to stick with paint and accept a degree of condensation. My previous boat was raw painted glass and we survived , just needed the odd wipe down if we were inside on a cold night.

There something in the thread on the abandoned cat ref the second boat found.

Hey Eryka... Eryka's point about scrubability is a good point... how do you clean it?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

G'day Starwindy
For a local news site, you could start with ninemsn.com.au
Try abctv.com.au

Yep..There was a second boat found. It was a runabout about 20 or so feet.
It had paperwork from New Caladonia or Nuemea.
It must have been in the water for ages because it had a crop of mussells growing on it.
I dont really think the Bermuda triangle has shifted.
Also I read in LAT.38 about another yacht having a mishap sailing from New Zealand to Australia.

A lot seems to happen downunder.
Jim.
