Would help. My boat more of less faces Southwest. The hill to the east blocks the sun until about 11 am. I can paint the southeast side before the sun hits, then move staging to the west side. It will be mid afternoon before the sun hits that side.

You can't paint in the sun and if it catches you, you're screwed! A breezy dry day is tough too even if overcast.

Polished out my hull in preparation for splash today and noticed that the line where the wrap ended had way more scuffing than prior years. Yard noted this on several boats as well. They think the plastic was either stiffer or formula changed from prior years. May have to try this technique next year. But I am getting closer to saloon table being done. Head cabinet redo next offseason and then we are into the small nice to do list.

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

The next upgrade. Certainly worth it to me.

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

And she's in for the season. Upgrades included new chainplates, standing rigging, rewire of mast, head replumb with new toilet, new holding tank alarm and tank reseal, some wiring rework. Bought a new vhf that I still need to install and the new bilge pump came today as the starboard one died this winter. Got new garhauer adjustable Genoa cars, but haven't installed yet. Put on some new fairleads for the furler, too.
Not as impressive as Tom, but we can't all be that ambitious.

As she's the only sailboat in the harbor I also think she certainly wins for best row away value, at least right now. Probably not when she was on the floats next to the two Hinkleys, though.

Getting there. In the meantime, three generations on our good old boat.

Nice work! Is this a cabin table?

It is. Used the old Formica as a template, and has a fold out leaf that will be supported by two locking spring hinges from Rockler. Rhodesian teak and maple for the woods. I replaced the cabin sole with Brazilian teak and Maple three years ago. Reinforced the stringers at that time as well.
