How you know your boat was built in the '70s
 
Avocado green formica!

My P30 had a green drop-table in the saloon and green countertop in the head. The galley was also green from the factory, I'm sure, but had been redone in white by a previous owner.

I think I've got pictures somewhere; I'll have to dig them up and scan them for your viewing pleasure.

Sorry for the silly thread, thought I'd try to help get some action going in the P30 forum.

Anybody else's P30 come with a '70s color scheme?

Whew, my lucky day, I've a '77 Sabre without a trace of avacado formica. Just teak and white formica. Dude, it's time to remodel the cabin.

Don't forget the mustard yellow formica in the head, makes a nice contrast to the avocado, don't you think? Ah, the 70's, what an interesting decade.

She's no longer mine. Loved every minute aboard, though, even with the green.

salon drop table formica
 
I cracked it while trying to rebuild the table. :cool: dang it. The hinges were bolted on, not screwed on, and the nuts were underneath the formica. (everywhere else, they used screws where I woulda thru-bolted - go figger)

So, anyone know of a dealer who delivers via a time machine??


LOL !

How do I know my boat was built in the '70's? 'because the hull tapers to a thickness of merely 1 inch of solid 'glass where the portlights are cut!
