The door is stow able the drop kind. With the warmth of the sun today the cetol dried fast and i was able to place the finished door in to cover her for the night. Ill take a picture of the completed project when im done. I want to add some new brass screws for the original door scoops / handles, it going to look tits when its done.



Love the paint job on this tanzer but then you have to buy 3 different colors and non ablative isnt cheap. All dark red is going to look sweet!

Whoa. You plan to paint the whole hull with anti-fouling bottom paint? BTW, now that you have fastened the dropboards together into one large board, do you have a plan to stow it? You may find it is less cumbersome if the dropboards remained separate, rather than being screwed together into one large door.

Having separate dropboards rather than a single giant dropboard also makes it easier to swap one out to ventilate the boat when at anchor and such.

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.

Sailing Florida.. You will love the Tanzer 22. It was my first boat. I raced her for 4 years and won many a race with her. Be careful how you had weight on her and not move the CG of the boat. Those tiles while look pretty could had weight where you don't want one. I had a 9 Hp Volvo outboard that never worked. Hence I learned fast how to sail her in and out of slips. My point is she is real easy to sail. Keep the hatch boards separate if it is not too late. Trust me on this one. If you have the swing keel version check the pin and wire rope carefully before you launch her.

Too late on the drop boards ive found a place to stow the door while sailing so that wont be a problem. As far as the weight I dont think that the tile will add that much weight to the boat to be a problem. Add it is even bulkhead evening ea side out and the counter top and table evening ea other out.

looks like you already have an existing water line, just follow that. Unless you think you need to modify it for some reason.

Lots of Topsides Paint out there. Thats like asking what anchor I should carry. Your going to have to do some research. A talk with your local chandler will help. Awlgrip, Awlcraft, are a couple but they can be expensive and difficult to use for the DYI.

This link might help, it has some tips on DIY Topside Painting.
