Default Cabin Project.........What did I do.

So we planned to just add Air conditioning to the cabin this year and see how we really use the boat...... then this happened. Total gut and start over. This was a usable cabin.....

Stay tuned...

Whole cabin is gutted. New bulkheads going in and new layout starts tomorrow. Plan is 2 couches facing each other, large berth, as much storage as possible, bar on one side, closet with porta chitter on the other and we have to fab a new door. Hopefully it come out well. Bruce Jones is doing it and he already has some pretty trick ideas for the cabin.

More pictures tomorrow.

Anyone have a good source for vinyl for the seats? Particularly the diamond pattern pleated stuff.

We had plans to do it next year but it just snowballed.

Removed probably 600-800 lbs at least from the front. 45 years worth of cobbled rerigs. Hoping to only put about 1/2 or less back in .

Should be nice when it's done.

Is Bruce Jones the one who did the work on 'Braceyourself's squadron cig?

Yep. He also fixed a ton of paint on American Muscle II and numerous other boats.

We are making th cabin pretty simple but have a bunch of "may as well do this and thats" while it's apart.
