Replaced all lifelines with Johnson fittings and swaged them myself (126 turns with the rachet wrench)..cost $650 saved $750 off West marine or Annapolis Rigging quotes for the job
Replaced Hot Water Heater
Replaced Lazy jacks
T37Chef..look for us this weekend as we will be heading out Saturday with MYC Sailfleet companions for a mini-vous to: destination to be determined at 9 AM Sat AM. We are rafting up for the evening and bring appetizers and 3 bottles of red wine per boat.

Finally snapped some pictures and collected three years of progress.
Three albums, one for each year I've owned her. The last of which shows the results of my spring list posted above.
SD - Thanks for help on the GPS/Fishfinder mount, look how it came out!
T37, I launch on Saturday. I can tell you how the new fishfinder works for depth replacement. I've mounted a shoot-through transducer and I'm curious to see if it can replace my depth gauge completely. (it better, my depth is DEAD 95% of the time and randomly works once in a while)

Well so far....
Still on the list:
New teak hand rails
New teak toe rails
Those may have to wait until the fall.

Updates - Finished the list and then some. Did bail and hire some young yard guys to wet sand and compound. But it opened up a bunch of time for me to tackle custom making a fishfinder mount and swivel and installing. Also build a companion way board based drink holder.
I'll take pictures and post somewhere tomorrow.
After three years of ownership and countless hours here with all of your help the boat now looks like it's 10-20 years younger and it's at least 3 times safer than when I bought it.

I'm halfway through my list, I just want to say thanks to all the resources and knowledge on this board... my projects are going smooth and I wouldn't have even attempted half of them without everyone's advice and support.
Launch is approaching!
