Live Your Dream. Sail around the world.

Work Continues

We’re making progress. Stove is in after making some modifications to the countertop. More pictures on that later. Bottom paint is now also done including the waterline thanks to Ash. I don’t have time to tape a waterline. Zincs are all replaced. Port trim tab is back on after the gelcoat hairline repair. Trailer is put back together after the jack up procedure in order to paint under the bunks.

 

I also ripped out the old depthsounder transponder two old speed dials from the transom. We’re going to replace it with this Lowrance Elite 5:

 

It is expensive but considering it is a GPS and depthsounder combined makes that more reasonable. It has a 5″ x 5″ inch lcd display. Super simple to operate from what I saw in the store. But the bonus that makes this worthwile,  are the complete maps set for my area. That alone is a $130 cost if it were separate. I will be adding and updating a full review of the Lowrance Elite5 down the road.

 

Still lots to do including:

  • Complete parts for Heat Exchanger and instlal
  • Install Elite5 Lowrance depthsounder
  • Get Moorage
  • Anchor chain & rode
  • Finish Stove installation
  • Clean
  • Figure out storage inside
  • Mount fender brackets
  • ..
  • .

 

 

 

Never ending 🙂
