    I'm with glassdave, I voted not to finish the cabin only because you said you never use it, personally, I spend at least one night on my boat probably 90% of the times i use it and unlike chris... i'm single so all the more reason to have a cabin

    I can't go in the cabin, or I'll be hanging over the side talking to Captain O'Roake, trying to buy a Buick.

    For family I would finish. If that is not a concern I would at least finish it lightly. I am in the process of finishing my cabin as the previous owner removed everything including the wall to wall shag. I plan to remove the adhesive residue from the fiberglass and sand then paint with a epoxy paint to at least leave it clean. I have the v cushions and will throw them in. The least amount of crap to break the better.

    This is Bull! I know better.

    If you were a single guy you would want a cabin so you could trick little honeys into the cabin with "special" beads.

    Well as has been stated the boat project has been going a little shall we say SLOW!!! I think that I will put in the stringers with the thought that I will put it back together again that way if next winter I decide that I do not like it with out the cabin I can always put it back together again.....

    Put your best foot forward!
