Hey all,
I was off work for 2-1/2 months and took on quite a few projects !
I decided to use my time wisely and remodeled my entire interior and for those of you who saw my balsa core rot project I have completed it. Pictures before and after are in my album posted today. I have a few more things to button up and then Iíll be ready to fish again Thumbs Up
Below is a list of things I did to fishwisher during my COVID time off if your interested.

New window rubbers and scuppers.
Removed all bolt through and screwed items - over drilled and epoxied.
Installed new ladder.
Fixed rot around Bomar Hatch (epoxied) and resealed.
Fixed core rot on deck and starboard bulkhead.
Painted deck after repairs.
Fixed anchor light and re-wired.
New wiring for bilge pump.
Took apart windlass cleaned and re-greased.
Color sanded and polished most of boat.
Installed new C-Dory graphics.
laminated,cut and installed new wood for interior.
Installed new Lonseal flooring.
All teak wood sanded and refinished.
New seals for lazaretteís.
Rear tie down u-bolt replaced.
Had a friend reupholster seats and sleeping area.
Epoxied various holes.
Moved heater closer to the rear to allow more room for captains chair.
Iím sure Iím missing something but Iím drawing a blank right now!
(It happens)
Laughing
Now Iím going to have cold one.
Fish on!!!

I like that Captains chair. Did you redo the original, or is that from a commercial source? Nice, either way.

Hardee, My girlfriend bought me the seat from the boat shop while they installed my motor as a birthday surprise and I matched the rest of the seats and sleeping pad.
