Re: New Cal 2-46 owner!
That is exciting I hope your survey goes well,
yeah the tanks are pricey. I am doing all my own work so I dont have any labor costs. one thing I can suggest is, if you are doing the work yourself research the ABYC standards, its like renovating an old house if you change something it has to meet ABYC code, boat insurers insist on it. I removed two black garbage bags of derelict wires from years of helter skelter wiring. i've spent hours and hours and a wheelbarrow load of money redoing the wiring to meet ABYC specs.
The shrouds and backstay have sta-loc fittings installed, I have a hyde streamstay forestay so it doesnt have a wire it uses an extruded aluminum alloy rod. I will be changing all the chainplate bolts and rebedding.
