Mark,

Wow! You have been busy. It looks like a little more than the floor boards and the mast step have gotten some attention. I would like to see more pics. What did you do about the ceilings?

Hi, not a I-28 owner but this construction is first class.
The plate distributes the keel force more evenly and properly bedded would be a great improvment on the single heavy washers on my Westerly.
I have been thinking along these lines for a permenant cure to seepage into the bilges due to keel/hull flexing.
Can only link pairs of keel bolts at present due to bilg strengthening struts but it may be worth removing these as they require repair anyway.
I would be concerned about the amount of corrision visible on your keel bolts and nuts. It could be worse were it can,t be seen.
Regards
Brian

Down,

Iím glassing over and finishing all the fiberglass surfaces, I want to see the structure of the boat not cover it up. Inside the head Iíll finish the surfaces smooth and use a two-part paint system. In the other areas Iím not going to try to smooth things up much more than is shown in the pictures Ė will probably use a high build epoxy primer followed by a satin one-part top coat. The sole will be finished smooth and painted with a two-part paint system with some sort of non-skid.

The mast step was rebuilt using solid fiberglass for the section of sole and the floor beam below the compression post.

Brian,
It is a rugged keel installation. The I-28s are well built boats. The bolts all ring true and I am going to leave them alone unless a keel joint leakage problem arises.

Mark,

That is impressive work and a lot of it! I like the way it looks. I am going to do something about my ceilings because of other work I am doing but I had not considered glassing it all. Do you think you have added much weight? My 1977 hull has a vinyl ceiling with access zippers. A couple of the zippers are fused and the edges of the ceiling is coming loose in places because the staples holding it have rusted. I am considering teak or mahogany lath and trim.

Consider a Lavac head. I installed one and am very happy with it. it adds an emergency manual bilge pump, too. I will collect some pics of that install.

Mark,

Do you have any "before" pics that show what I will find if and when I pull down my ceilings? That would be a great bit of insight to have. Perhaps we should start a new thread about I-28 cabin interiors?
