I have officially started work on C27, #2001, as of last night. My hope is that somehow I can maintain some sort of a living thread documenting updates with posts, details, and pics etc. Last night I started poking around on the interior wiring, and going over the PO's punch list of items to be completed. His punchlist is mostly functional, with some cosmetic points: · Finish stripping companionway door boards and varnish them. The wood handle on the companionway hatch could also use a touch up. · Wire masthead light and attach to top of mast · Install 4 prong plug on mast wiring at mast base · Run mast light wiring from breaker box through cabin and up through coach roof/mast step · Install/rebed mast step · Install new seacock on water intake for engine and attach water intake line from engine to seacock · Replace frayed wire that runs from starter to ignition switch · Put caps on pipes left over from marine head plumbing · Replace water tank and replumb · Drill new tiller and replace on rudder post Outside of these items, I intend to do the following: · Re-wire the boat's primary charging and distribution circuits · install a 19" flat screen TV/DVD combo with surround sound, ( I work in AV, so it is kind of a tradition for me) · Install the omnidirectional digital TV antenna at the mast head · Replace old cabin lighting with an updated Halogen lighting system · Install ice-powered AC unit for summer use · Add rope clutches and redo running rigging for an all-line-led -aft control scenario · Replace incandescent running lighting with LED, (in an attempt to make up for the halo lighting down below That is the short list for now, and I am sure it will grow, but my hope is to launch by spring or early summer 2011. The boat is indoors, and I am working on lighting and heating, but that is coming together quickly. Stay tuned for updates, pics and more.
