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.

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

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

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

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

CaptainMayhem, welcome aboard! My boys are 7 and 4 (soon to be 5). I see that you're a little northwest of me. Where will you be doing your local sailing? We're going to be on Peace Valley using an old Albacore that I picked up on Craigslist for cheap. Our "big boat" will be out on Barnegat Bay this summer, if I can get her there.

Nockamixon, then somewhere down around MD for the cruising I hope.
Looking hard for a boat right now, 32-34' really like the look of the beneteau's inside and out.
But will end up with what ever fits the wallet I'm sure.
last time I sailed was my honeymoon, took the wife out on a hobby cat,lol
I swear the wrinkles have yet to clear from her face, we did actually submarine the thing, caught a wave and it just went down right up to the tiller. Bobbed back up straight away but that was the end of that fun,lol
Now I get to do it with a seven year old who has no concept of dancing with the wind. can't wait
