The varnished inside faces of the head doors had blistered and looked ratty so I finally got around to sanding them down.  The side walls were white and curiosity got the better of me so I took the mirror down and test-sanded behind only to find my job had just become bigger (thanks to whichever P.O. broke out the Benjamin Moore).  I didn't think to take a proper before photo so here's the test-sanded area, the fully sanded head, and the current (3rd coat of West Systems Epoxy) state.  Remaining work to be done is two coats of Captain's varnish, new floor, new fixtures, window dressing, and maybe some LED lighting.  Then we'll really be able to "enjoy the go"

Hi John.  You're on the North shore, right?  I'm down in Island Park near Long Beach.

Jim, you are correct. Can't work on your own boat.  That's pretty normal around here as I understand.


Im no better than the next guy but definatly a good chance im more itchy

Hoping to be  painting my  bilge very soon.

Your head looks great 

Actually my boat is on the south shore.  I believe you boat was a couple of boats away from me at the Bergen marina when on the hard.  If I remember correctly it was once owned by the Andrew sisters.

It wasn't mine at the time.  I wish I could prove it was once owned by the Andrews Sisters.  That would be a hoot!

Supposedly mine was once owned by one of the Mandrell sisters. I don't put much stock in that.

Is your boat called the "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy"?
