Sounds like minimal issues on the leaks, which is a plus. How many layers of fiberglass do you use for boat work? I've been dealing with it on the cat eye things for the Miata and it's stout after about 3 layers, but I'm curious how thick it needs to be for a boat.

this is an interior piece. A lot of the youtube people doing similar work are only using 2-3 layers in the corner. I did 4 corner layers widening each time and 2 layers on the main piece of wood. I did 1 extra wrap in the area I will bolt the connection plate. This is also on 1/2" marine plywood which is pretty strong itself.

Went out for the maiden voyage 2 weekends back. Some prolly saw the IG posts. Twas a good time and the wife really likes going out on nice days. She didnt get motion sickness and this usually plagues her activities with me.

Father in Law tagged along. Few things to work on as always with a 1982 boat but its fit for sailing.

We had a hyped storm that turned into nothing. They even gave it a name for a winter storm :wtf:

Made a quick 5am run to boat and back Saturday before storm hit. All was good and added some bumpers. The ropes aren't gonna hold up through this year so I ordered some new line. 3/8" dia "Yacht Braid" from amazon. $25/50'. Will see how I like it before getting the super :waxer: rope from local yard.

Boat is staying very dry so I've got the leaks sealed for now. :notbad:

Going to work on getting the cushions re done soon so we can sleep on it before the summer.

ray ray stopped to check out my boat. He thinks he still wants a large boat and says he has $60k disposable.. :rolleyes:

anyway, we walking the marina looking at new and old boats. he finds this big 40' boat. Nice, german made, not common in these parts.

rayray: "thats like a $200k boat! I want that"

:dubshow: "nah dad, thats probably like a $90-100k boat depending how its set up"

"no way its that cheap"

:dubshow: "hey look, here is the ad for it. they want $79k"

"Oh, well see if they will take $55k. I bet they will take it!"

:dubshow: "what are you basing that price on? They probably have it priced a bit under market value and says here motivated seller in the ad, i think its fair"

"ok well i'll offer $65k, find who the owner is so I can buy it"

:dubshow: "no, im not bothering the owner for you to pester and low ball. 45 seconds ago you thought it was a $200k boat."

I've acquired a 24' boat trailer. It will be converted to a sailboat trailer. Hoping to not pay the next slip and get hauled out so I can repaint the bottom and hull.

Trying to find some old take off stern rail. Id like to mount my solar panel back there. Making a boat trip this weekend. Not sure how long I will stay.

Something like that for around $200. Sadly we dont have a large enough city with lots of boats like the other gulf areas to have great finds.

To change this:

into this:

Also getting things together for the cushion upgrade. And buy the small ac unit for my companionway retrofit.
