#vancouver #whitby42 #refit Binnacle removed ready for stripping sanding primer and paint. Cockpit is huge without it. Kind of too bad it has to go back in ๐Ÿ˜‚

#vancouver #whitby42 #refit #recore One of those jobs that sometimes just keeps growing. BUT might as well fix it right while I can rather than doing a half assed job.

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit #deckrecore Most of the fittings off now. Of course there is always 1 or 2 stuck bolts ๐Ÿ˜ก

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Scaffolding is set up on one side finally. And the foam core and corebond is in for the foredeck repair!


0

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Ok it is coming along nicely. I will have to go wider both sides and come back a bit more on port side and then forward but so far good progress! Leaving it open to dry for a few days before I grind and fill.

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit So thatโ€™s what 2535 feet of rope looks like! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I am not one to colour code everything. I like every line matching and if need be labelled.

#vancouver #whitby42 #refit #tbt Ok I know it isnโ€™t Thursday but here it is. When the kids were still small and our #gsd was still a young girl. The three of them would spend hours rowing all around the marina. Much better than video games and cell phones. Hard to believe this was 11 years ago!

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit thanks to @sailingaquila for the 2nd sink. The fit Needs some fine tuning and new taps but it is fantastic!!

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit #boatbabes Now thatโ€™s what I call a sexy lady on a boat picture! Nevermind the high heals, short skirts and skimpy bathing suits in all the other pictures! Can they hang over the side and sand the caprail?

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Itโ€™s not always clean and tidy ๐Ÿ˜œ

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Boating swap meet score!! 4 brand new fenders and a brand new hailer! Now I donโ€™t have to yell at the Admiral AND I should be able to hear her swearing at me under her breath ๐Ÿ˜‚


3

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit And the Admiral continues to make progress on the caprail. Need to do some epoxy work in some of the cracks but I think it will turn out pretty damn nice just the same!!


0

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit And the work begins! Prodigy Marine has started the hull repairs. 44 years of dents and bangs to clean up before fairing and paint! ๐Ÿ˜Š Now I am getting Fโ€™ing excited!!!!!

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit What do you think? Blue hull, blue engine...might as well have blue engine room accent lighting ๐Ÿ˜‚

#vancouver #Whitby42 #refit Canine Inspection time for Akupara!

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit The new engine has arrived!! Slight hiccup in that a month went by before the purchase order was actually sent but oh well shโ‚ฌยฃ happens, and it is here now! The engine is a Solรฉ. Does that mean Akupara now has a sole? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Bad Dad joke!!

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Aft cabin - success! Had to do a bit of fine tuning and will clean it up at home but overall very pleased! Admiral still managed to bang her head ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿค” said we need a bigger boat - NOT

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Hmmmm decisions decisions decisions ๐Ÿ˜‚ How many times in your life do you get a chance to wipe paint on your hull and you donโ€™t care??๐Ÿ˜‚


5

#vancouver #whitby42 #refit Managed to create another gigantic mess. Starboard fuel tank starting to come out. For all of you Whitby owners, the port and starboard fuel tanks are completely held in place by fiberglass and the tank itself has a flange around the top that is screwed down. Need to cut away the entire case in order to get the tank out I think. We are also considering changing the shape of the tank so that this area can be converted into a settee, what do you think? A little tucked away reading nook, or leave it as a work area?

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit #boatgifts #boatjewelry New pots for Akupara!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ somehow this means more work for me but the Admiral is pleased! Any good ideas out there for storing your pots rattle free?

#vancouver #whitby42 #refit A sneak peak at the new Before and After picture gallery on the blog, coming soon! TBT this transition has taken over 3 years so lots of Thursdayโ€™s in there ๐Ÿ˜‚


2

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Paint colours chosen, test patch done, estimate received, cheque written, work starts asap. First they sand the entire hull down to gel coat, as Akupara has been painted before, then they fix all the little nicks and bangs, then they spray primer, sand again and finally 5 coats of paint, and a clearcoat once the stripes are done. Doing it now so that the paint has as much time to cure as possible before we launch!

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Engine room reno continues. Installed Silverboard styrofoam insulation where the old brown fiberboard used to be and covering with new marine plywood. And one more cushion test fit. Success it fits ๐Ÿ˜‚

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Nothing more satisfying than finally putting bright white paint in a place that damn near broke me!!!!! First coat of paint in the bilge where the tank used to be!

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit There has been a mark on the hull since we bought Akupara. Had some investigation done, turns out it is an old repair that needs to be fixed. While they were at it they did a test sanding patch to cost out the paint job. Going to look pretty funny if we donโ€™t go ahead with painting! ๐Ÿ˜‚.

#Vancouver #whitby42 #refit Nav Station cushions in. Happy with the colour against the wood.
