If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Fantastic job, but what the hell is that open cavity in the bow? Usually, there's a solid deck there, that is over the V-berth.

As usual, nice work on the mast step Eric.

In case any of you are wondering about that 2 cylinder engine I was building. I did get it running eventually.

Re: My Project Boat

So I too have undertaken a project boat. I bought a 1976 30' Lancer for $2800. The interior has been completely redone by the PO. They had an eclectic style and took a few shortcuts and did not go all out but I find the cabin to be very comfortable and accomodating. I don't have any pics to post as of now but here are the things which I need to do to get her sailing again.

1: The four-stroke 9.9hp outboard starts on a dime and sounds great but no cooling water coming out of the pee hole.

2: Haul out and bottom paint

3: Repair the Jib, replace a few hanks on the mainsail.

4: New standing rigging and running rigging

5: Elbow grease, elbow grease, and more elbow grease!

6: Port lights are foggy. I like the one peice smoked idea as I have 3 on each side and that seems like a more affordable and easier solution than replacing or repairing each one.

7: Fix or replace one hatch which leaks.

Anyways, I'll post some pics soon, I really appreciate everyones participation on this site. It has inspired me to take on a project which should allow me to be sailing within a couple of months. The best thing is that I am using this boat as my office (answering phone and booking jobs for my contracting business) as I complete the work so I am writing off the slip fees, utilities and repairs!

Best of luck with that.

Sounds great.

Maybe the pee hole only has a dirt dobber nest or spider web in it. Seen that before.
