Good job. I like the colors. For my cushions, the foam was easly cut with an electric meat knife. The sliding storage is a good idea, but, warn guests not to grab the rail while underway!

Topmarks. Always good to see someone get it done.

Thanks Jeff. The fabric came from FabricLand in Victoria (there's one in New West I think too), it's actually outdoor fabric so it's water repellent, stain resistant, mildew resistant etc, but still soft and easily sewn. The foam came from a place up in Duncan, I would cut it myself in future as it's cheaper and I think I'd do a better job of it.

Wow, that turned out great Paul! I am about to start the same kind of project on my 1979 San Juan 7.7. Where did you get your fabric and foam from? Why do you wish you cut the foam yourself?
Thanks!

Re: Finally finished the interior refit

Thanks guys, we did it all ourself aside from cutting the foam, and in hindsight I wish we'd done that too.
Smack, the photos were taken as we got off the boat today from our first overnighter with the puppy, so we'd already drunk the booze the previous night. Rest assured, there is plenty of storage for booze (although we're thinking of adding a wine rack )

Looks awesome dude! Your cushions are a lot nicer than mine.

But where's the booze?

Nice job Paul! I like the colors.

On and also, in the first picture is the original dividing curtain between the cabin and v-berth, ugly old canvas thing with a full-length zip that was pretty much impossible to use. Now replaced with a nice drop-down curtain that is easily lowered and raised from either side.

Re: Finally finished the interior refit

OK, so here is how she looked before:
Note the hideous curtains which not only looked horrid, but they didn't open, the table blocking access to the v-berth and the distinct lack of storage. Oh and the plaid of course.


And here she is now!

V-berth, with new blackout hatch cover and hanging paper/manual/TP holder ($2 from the thrift store). Plus all new foam and upholstery.


Starboard berth, with new foam/upholstery, new curtains, full-length rail and hanging locker in the aft position




Starboard berth with hanging locker in forward position


We have 2 sets of the hanging lockers so plenty of storage now, plus all the manuals etc are hidden away in the rack thing up in the v-berth.
Looking forward with the table in the new athwartships position, much easier to get to the v-berth now, and the table is way more usable for things other than eating on. The sail is actually tucked out of the way under the table.


Few bits still to do to tidy up the cabin roof mostly, and we are making some throw cushions from the original plaid just to keep a bit of the original in there.
We're so pleased with how it all turned out, it's made a massive difference to her abilities as a compact cruiser, and everything simply removes over winter or when I want to strip her down to go fast.

Re: Finally finished the interior refit

Didn't realize that the older C&C s used the tartan plaid up hostelry like the Catalina's did. My wife is currently redoing our cushions and foam. 6 done 18 more to go.

Let's see some pictures. What color to go with that bright "Tangerine" color.
