wow the cost...if you have a certain part you are wondering about I can do that but to write out the complete cost might take awhile, as there were alot of projects, decks, topsides, heat/air, winlass, bow roller, plumbing, new gas tank, new teak and so on, feel free to ask about anything its just hard to give a complete project total with all the factors. I can't even give you a time/cost for labor I did 100% all the work myself and had a nice big heated barn to do the work in so I had perfect conditions to do the job in, thanks to my father-in-law.

the teak was done with Flagship 2015, thinned with brushing thinner, there are 7-10 coats on all depending on what you are looking at.

here are some before pictures of the boat as well as a picture of the new cabin table my dad and I made for the dinette.









And here is a link to my photobucket site with lots of pictures if you want to look and have any questions feel free to ask. PaperboyRacing - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Beautiful job... Just curious, but what bottom paint did you use, it looks like copper.

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.

Dog,
I belive that is VC-17. Looks like VC before it hits the water.
Comes with these little packets of copper powder that you mix with the paint before applying. The copper powder gets everywhere, including your lungs if you don't wear a resperator. After launching the copper color turns to either blue, red or brown.
Columbia will correct me if I'm wrong.
