I livved in Ohio long enough to know that too many of those cheerleaders were corn-fed.
We usually went to the OU football games to watch the 110 Marchin' Men at half-time. (in the days when band was part of the athletic dept with no women) We only stuck around for the 3rd quarter if we needed a laugh.

So you're a Bobcat. I had an intern from OU once upon a time...good guy. My daughter-in-law even spent a couple of semesters there. Then she went to OSU briefly and finished up at Cedar Crest.
You better keep your eyes on those guys from Moo U, they can be a surley lot. I suspect it's an inferiority complex.
You know why MSU went to artificial turf? It was to keep the cheerleaders from grazing at halftime. He-he-he

The paint job is a great ice-breaker. My father was a grad but I happened to live immeadiately south and attended OU. (not OSU!!!!!!!!). Weve put two of our daughters through U of M & frankly, I think they owe me the paint job. I've so far received threats of the dreaded circle with a line through it and some creative midnight re-paints.

Welcome to Sailnet. Sounds like a dandy boat project you've got on your hands but I like your style. As a former Michigander (never Michiganian) I've always loved Maize and Blue, they are beautiful colors and the block M is a nice touch.
All the best to you in this great adventure...MGM

My cousin is a "gentleman sailor" He and his wife hired a full time skipper and his wife to manage and deliver the boat to places they wanted to be. The owner of the link I listed above was their skipper. Check out the ex-skipper's current new position on the ORION PROJECT at that link and a few of his previous boat positions. Kurt & Vicky had no particular goals regarding routs or circumnavigation but really enjoyed the venue de'jour. "What does Vicky make for dinner"? - RESERVATIONS. I love 'em. Note, click on any of Kurt & Vicky's photos for a link to that destination.
I was just having another look myself and noticed they transitted the Malacca straight. Right about now that would make my skin crawl.

Let me add my welcome!
It seems you really have your work cut out for you with this refit, but it also sounds as if you're cut out for the work too!
It must be handy having your cousin as a resource. That was quite a trip they took in their CN58. Looking at the track of their journey, I couldn't help wondering if they ever regret not having crossed their outbound route to "close" the circumnavigation? From the looks of it, one long tack to leeward might have done it! Do you ever kid him about it?
All the best of luck to you with the refit. We don't have too many boats your size here, but I hope we can be of assistance all the same. And maybe you can teach us a thing or two as well!

My cousin has been sailing blue water on a sister-ship to ours for about 8 years. He pointed us at our current Camper & Nicholson 58 because they liked their's so much. You can access their cruise record at this link
African Queen World Cruise
It is kept by their former full-time skipper, Tony. African Queen is currently for sale. Also follow the links to the Orion Project and Tony's other links.

|xort||congratulations on your new project. Once you get the hang of boat ownership, you can move up to a big boat!|
