Jkporter, your topside work came out great. That is exactly what I hope to be doing among many other things this winter/spring on her. Do you mind if I pick your brain about some of the paints/products used for the decks, interior etc..? The hull I plan on leaving for now as it still has a decent shine despite a few blemishes, but I would like to do the decks, house and interior, rub rails and hand rails to freshen the boat up a bit. The brightwork I should be able to take care of on my own but do you have any prep and paint recommendations for the remaining?
Also; Has anyone here replaced or rebuilt the two Aluminum deck hatches located on the center line of the vessels deck? Mine are made by Hancock Marine and have much ionization and corrosion on the bottom of the locking mechanisms that are preventing them from securing properly and they leak quite heavily in a good rain. I believe that the origional manufacturing company has since gone out of business.
Any information would be greatly appreciated on any or both topics.
happy boating and see ya'll out there.
