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.

E.S.

Maybe so, but he'll still beat ol' Burger Boy to the water!

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.....
