golf for sure, but I sure as heck love picking my own peppers and Toms from the garden.

Re: evening all

Well, we ended up going up to thousand islands for a long weekend last month, got the daughter out on a C&C for an afternoon sail.
She loved it !!!!!!!

Never one to let an iron get cold, I started looking for a boat that night,lol
Ended up picking up an O'day 23 for a song.
Been spending evenings re-bedding everything and generally making it ready for the spring, hopefully before the winter gets here,Brrrr

Not a recent picture, but this is the boat.
Currently she's on the dry, had the bottom stripped of 34 years worth of abuse . taken down to gel coat and checked for problems, none found.
Two fresh coats of blue anti foul and I'm some $$$$ lighter,lol
All the through decks have been removed, and re bedded with BT, what a pain in the backside that job is.
Motor mount off, and transom beefed up a little, just to be sure.
New deep cycle battery and solar battery keeper.
Sails were only a few seasons old, and look in great shape.
Removed and hammered back into flat all the stanchions.
Teak removed, grab rails were in such a bad state, I will epoxy and spar varnish, until funds allow replacement, I can fix the hatch rails, companionway board in very good shape.
Boat was under a tarp for the last few years after being completely re done inside(except cushions).
Cushions is another winter project I need to fix, foam is mildew(y) but intact, so I just need to get them re covered after I've cured the foam issue.
Chap I bought it from seems to have looked after it somewhat, there are a couple of soft spots, nothing that needs attention this minute, except maybe the port chain plate area.
Anyway, more pics once I can persuade my three year old to tell me he put the camera <sigh>.

Re: evening all

Very nice! Congratulations!

For the cushions, are the covers OK, or are they shot too? If the covers are OK, you can contact The Foam Outlet. They're in the Philly area, and I've heard that they have very good prices. I haven't used them myself, but my in-laws have.

covers were very musty and the zippers were stuck, so I junked them, kept the foam for now.

Re: evening all

There were some threads about cleaning foam. Have you seen them?

I made new covers for my old boat's cushions. Joanne's has really good sales a few times a year, and you can get nice fabric at a decent price if you aren't in a rush.
