I have removed all the seating on my boat, over the winter it will all be reupholstered, I can't wait to see it done!
I was hoping to drop the boat off to be hauled was they strip it out but the tides were not going to allow that so I brought it back to my slip and winterized the water systems. At this point I can complete the winterizing in about 2 hours. Sadly my season is over on the flip side we had a great season and already look forward to next year.

Now this is quite something to see the boat like that!!!
Why did they not continue with the AC units in the cockpit siting I am not sure.

Allen. I don't remember where I saw it but I did see where someone who replaced their saloon unit with a quiter one put the old unit under the port seat and ducted it out to the cockpit.

I was thinking about adding a unit for the cockpit if it would fit under that seat I might just do it, plumbing it might be an issue being it is over the guest stateroom.

John I need to either replace or fix my saloon unit anyway. My compressor makes terrible notice and last night I found it doesn't hit at all. $666 part. They told me in marine air they will not take the compressor back once it shipped, I thought it was very wired.
As Dave mentioned if I get my dad here for enough time I will have a unit for the cockpit as well. I think the 16,000 btu is a little too much for that though.

Interesting, on mine there was no access to the BIG space under the port seats, I cut in a couple of hatches to get to that storage space, under my starboard seat I have an EL panel for the electronics behind two doors in front and a bar in back. I also mounted wedges under the seats to make them lean back a little to be more comfy to sit in, big diff.
I did see pictures of one that had an AC under one of the seats. My ACs are under the port locker in the master an one under the seat in the cabin. Fortunately we don't have to run them much here in the NW they are a little noisy. My diesel fired heater that pumps hot water to radiator thru out the boat is more important and no noise#128522;

Here you go... More differences :-)
I have huge storage under the mid seat on the port side. It slides out and there is a ton of space. Under the port double seat I opened a hatch as well, I have 6 tool boxes there. My ac's are at the same locations as yours Odvar but we used them a lot this summer, intact in July I never turned the ac units off. $160 in electric bill from the marina.
Scott Dickman who owns "imagine" have an ac unit under that seat in the cockpit.

Unscrewed it from the bottom keep in mind mine is a little different then yours because of the power slide. However I'm sure it is mounted the same. There were two sets of screws first set can be reached from the front doors above the breakers the second set I had to remove the panel behind the breakers to reach the screws but if I recall your cabinet is different then mine so this may be harder for you.

I can't wait to see this completed it's going to look like a new boat:)

Removed the sub woofer under the seat and the guy had long arms to reach all the nuts. That side was much easier!

That would be some long arms. I had considered that but thought there would be no way to reach that far.

Looking at your pics, it looks like you use your storage under the pull out lounge. Do you find it useful? I had thought about mounting an air compressor for inflating rafts and dinghy. Might be a good place for a water maker as well. I also would not mind having the water heater there instead of in the engine room if I could find one to fit.

I just keep life jackets in there. I think I may cut an access door for storage under the companion seat that is if I dont decide to install a n ac unit there.

Well after 6 months I finally finished the anchor locker and windlass rebuild and one again have a working anchor. There were a few things I still need to do but involve sealant and it is now to cold. I have new foot pedals to install as well as a couple of areas to touch up paint in the locker. Here are a few photos

When was the last time you put oil in your windlass gear case? Mine was bone dry. Not a drop in it. No grease under the captain either.

Need to service my windless, I greased it earlier this year. Your anchor locker looks REALLY nice John. Good work. I had to do a minor tach up in the anchor room but generally it is in good shape,

Allen - Mine had no grease at all left. If you look at the last picture you can see where there is nothing. Even a little corrosion. The oil reservoir has nothing in it either.

No. You can remove the lower unit by itself. Take the motor off first. Much easier.

Has anyone replaced their cutlass bearings? It is one of the things I plan to do in the spring when I haul out. I know the shafts are 2" but I don't know the dimensions of the struts. I should have measured when I hauled last weekend but didn't.

I also found a problem with my starboard rudder last weekend during the haul. There are four bolts that hold the rudder to the boat at the bottom. All were loose and one was broke off. Looks like I will be re-habing the rudders too. The list just keeps growing. I originally planned to be out for the month of April. Now looks like it might May too.

So the list of things I plan to get do starting around Feb (before I haul out) go like this:
duckbills in vacuflush
replace the rest of the screens
remove existing radar and install new
finish helm rehab
pull the genset out to refinish (I want to fix a spot of dry rot I found and then paint and insulate the space)
replace genset muffler
refinish floor in the garage

Once hauled I plan to:
pull props and shafts and have them balanced/tuned
replace transmission shaft seals
dripless shaft seals
cutlass bearings
rudder seals/bearings (and evidently at least on bolt)
Paint engine bilges
pull heat exchangers and have them cleaned
replace one alternator with high output alternator (I am tying one to the house batteries and the other to the starting batteries)
replace battery cables (and add a third house battery)
relocate genset battery to centerline with the rest
possibly install an inverter to power teles/sat dish
paint arch and install new radome and sat dish
strip bottom and put on new barrier coat and bottom paint

If after all that we have any boat bucks left I will likely put in new cockpit upholstery too.

So what does everyone else have planned for upgrades, etc. in the spring.

I made a video this morning from my first use of the gopro. While it is semi-cool I wish I had done it a little different. The first part is about 20sec of just in the slip. We went to the pump out for the last time of the season and I turned it on in the one shot every five seconds mode. There is also a 1/1 and 1/3 setting. For me the 1/5 setting is not enough. That part of the video, riding around waiting for out turn in the haul out bay and going back was a little over an hour. I shut it off while we cleaned the bottom and changed zincs. The battery ran out before we got back to the slip. I can not wait to use it in Jamaica in two weeks and all of next season on the boat.

I don't log my nights on board but I'd guess about 12 not many but days on board countless I really didn't get to spend many nights on the boat this year but I was there between 2-4 days per week. I'm hoping to spend a lot more nights on board next year, hopefully my kids will let this happen.

Got you guys beat, for the time being we are living on the boat, very comfortable, last night is was 30 degrees outside no problem. Spent 3 months up in the islands last summer, perfect. I have a big house battery bank and a big inverter. A diesel heater is great. Got a big TV and a small one next to it with a "fireplace DVD " running, out in the cockpit, very cosy.
Would like to hear about a good muffler for the genny.
John, sounds you have a full time job ahead of you, good luck with it , been there done some of it.

One winter project is just about dome. Took the swim platform off the boat a couple of weeks ago and brought it home, started working on the bottom first, I did one lare of epoxy and painted with interlux brightside white 4359 came our great.
Than flips the platform, sanded, sealed dents and chips on top and sides, painted the side rim with the same white from brightside. After one day of drying I applied the kiwi grip non skid, tried following instructions and vedios I watched on YouTube. I am very happy with the results:







This is after painting the trim:

I decided it was time to check in and see the status of my upholstery today and I was pleasantly surprised. It looks like they are more then half done and what is finished looks great. Everything was all covered in plastic or I would have taken a few pictures. This was a fairly big job but it seems they have under control. I can't wait to see it all put back together.

Good job on the swim platform Allen. Can't wait to see pics of it mounted.

Also looking forward to seeing photos of Dave's new seating. I can not wait until I can afford to have mine done. All my money this year is going to the bottom and running gear.

I do have some small projects to do before I haul out this spring and start the major stuff. I don't think I will be getting started until February though. Just do not have the desire to be cold this winter so I have resolved myself to stay indoors.

I have a leaking Norcott seal on one side and a drip while running from the prop shaft trans seal on the other side. So I a pulling the shafts and replacing both seals on both sides. While I am at it I m going to do the cutlass bearings, tune the props, have the shafts checked and service the rudders. I also plan to strip all of the old bottom paint and start fresh. On the inside I am replacing all of the battery cables and possible replacing one of the alternators with a HO. I am also pulling the heat exchangers, including the genset and having them cleaned out. While I have the genset out of the hole I am putting some sound deadening in there and painting it. There are a few other things I want to get done to but those are the big ones.

I agree I didn't notice how much you have on your list. This is a pretty major deep pocket list! I did my bottom a few years ago and it is still in good shape. My props have been done a couple of time but since I changed marinas I have not had a need to service them. I have been lucky my Norcott seals have been holding tight. The heat exchangers is something I would think about but temps are perfect and don't see a reason at this time.

How are you planning to strip the bottom?

Best of luck with all these project!

It is a big list. I just hope I can get it all done. I will be doing the majority of the work myself so it will probably be on the hard all of April and May. My plan is to move it to FL in the fall so I want to make sure all the work I can do is done before it goes down there. I would like to be done by Memorial weekend but I am not going to rush it.

Well I guess my list wasn't big enough so I decided to start redoing old projects. I didn't like the way my dash panel was holding up so I pulled it out and I will redo the entire project. The carbon fiber did not hold up to the UV rays and started to fade, I tried everything to restore the finish but decided to just remove the effected panels and simply paint black. In addition I am redoing another section that didn't hold up well when I'm finished it should all look like new. The only thing left I would like to upgrade would but to replace the steering wheel. Has anyone here replaced theirs and if so I would like to know if there is anything special as to the shaft size that I need to be aware of before I order a new one?
