sounds like you are really rolling along and nearing completion. how long has the process taken, so far?

Over the weekend we got most all of the new wiring ran to the appropriate places and began installing some of the interior.

We've slightly adjusted the design of the step area and companionway. The two main real handles previously didn't align exactly with both sides of the companionway. We've installed all new wood and will put the ac/dc panel on the starboard side as you step into the cabin.

Getting closer for pictures!

great minds think alike. lol. i was planning on converting my former engine compartment into a very well insulated, large ice box (maybe even add refrigeration later on)

i'd like to see some more pics...especially of the refit process.

it's good to not be the only cal pop top guy on here.

i don't know a source for them. i was going to reuse mine. my rubrail is cracked up and damaged in one spot, so, i also have no choice about replacing it. there is a place called Minney's (not sure about that spelling) on line that might actually have something like that. it's worth checking.

The counter had actually sagged about a 1/4 inch as well. The floor had a small crack in it as well, but it looks like the PO had drilled a small hole to drain water which undoubtedly added to the crack. We reglassed the crack as well as a new bulkhead and have a new post cut out of solid wood. We'll be covering it in epoxy and reinstalling.

We have a Johnson outboard that fired right up when we bought the boat after sitting for maybe 10 years.
yours had the cut out for the motor, then?

We also tested some nonskid on top of a hatch and it looked good when we left the boat yesterday. If all is well there then we'll get he deck nonskid finished up so we can reset everything using butyl tape and counter sinking the bolts.

If you plan on painting the deck and cabin we used rustoleum oil based from lowes/Home Depot. It the same thing as their marine paint but since it doesn't say "marine" on the can its half the price. Our boat is shining bright in navy blue and white now. Looks like an entirely different boat.
i have seen your boat. lol. we have even spoken. you are on the Cal boat yahoo group? you are right, if that is you. the paint job does look nice.

Help there is needed as well if you have any good options.

I'll post some pictures as soon as it will allow me.
i have no cushions at all. presently using an air mattress. i was planning on making my own cushions. beyond the point of difficulty of trying to find cushions to actually fit, even used ones are a bit salty. has to be cheaper to make them.

i mounted a breaker box on the rear bulkhead of the cabin, on the starboard side. it keeps the electronics high and it's really easy to turn the cabin lights on, as you step below.

i haven't actually been able to determine what caused my mast sag, yet. i have to do some more looking. everything from the top of the compression post down looks just fine. it's just at the roofline where you can tell. if it weren't for the cracking and slight sagging of the roof around the post and the companionway door track not quite meeting up with the roof, you wouldn't know there was an issue.
