Taking stock of the winter project-83 Com-PAC 19

Boat Project

Major items:
Fiberglassing-foot long crack on port side stern
-Chipping at bow
-Reglass cabin floor*
-Crack at mast mount?
-Reseal all fastenings

New porthole seals
Go through wiring
-Also, get shore power hookup
-New lights (2 interior)
New sails
New rigging
New safety lines with netting
Motor
Battery
Bottom paint
New paint scheme
Paint interior
Redo woodwork
Make new companionway door
Companionway steps
New cushions
Portable toilet
Collapsable water jug
Portable shower
Replace forward hatch vent
Seal all hatches
Waterproof bags

Safety Equipment:
-Multiple rating fire extinguisher
-Flare gun
-Marine radio (handheld?)
-Life-preservers
-Collapsable boat hook

So far this is what I've decided it needs. My roomate pointed out if I'm going to do all this work why not stretch the cabin an extra foot? He made an excellent point considering I'm a 6'4" man. My only gripe is would this compromise the structural integrity of the boat? Can this work? Or is it better left alone because this is the way it way intentionally designed?

It would be a lot of work to make the cabin a foot longer without compromising the integrity of the cabintop and deck. Unless you're very good with fiberglass repair, it isn't likely you'll be able to do this safely. It may also have some negative unintended consequences, as making the cabintop longer increases the windage and raises the center of gravity slightly.

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.

Yeah that's what I thought too. OK, thanks. I really would like to do as little fiberglass repair as possible. Keep it structurally sound and call it good.
