Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.
Hi, new to Sailing, just purchase a Macgregor M25, a casualty of hurricane Michael. I just got the boat home from the panhandle this past weekend.
The boat (hull and fiberglass) itself is in excellent condition. The interior needs a lot of work. I just finished taking out the wooden cabinets what someone had built inside. All cushions are gone except the v berth. Came with a Nissan 9.9HP 4 stroke. Previous owner said the carb needs to be rebuilt. Previous owner lived on the boat until September (2 months ago). Then hurricane Michael came ashore around Port St. Joe and filled the boat with water (fresh water).
I plan on searching the forum for ideas on how to remodel the interior. I plan on doing most of the remodeling myself, excluding the cushions.
Any and all thoughts and input on how to replace the headliner, check the electrical (came with shore power), removing the chipping/peeling of what appears to be paint on the ceiling around the headline. Or, just remodeling suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Best regards and happy sailing.
