First boating season on the newly christened “Vintage Sol”

Shipped from Toledo to West Michigan last fall with windshield removed she was outside on the hard all winter so projects were limited to interior updates and getting acquainted with her systems. Added 16000 BTU air, 2 tecma heads, 90 gallon holding tank, stretched master berth to a queen size , added new wall paper and a new sole in the galley, master and both heads. Now that the sun is out a bit we got the windshield back on after some rotted wood was replaced and a local guru worked his magic on the gel coat!

Love that shiny hull!!!!

Very nice.

Looks great Glenn. How about some before & after photos of your interior work? Love to see your progress and improvements!

Here is the guest head. The sink will be painted white but with the construction it was too dust to get a good finish.

Engineered acacia flooring. Very high density wood with mostly epoxy base to limit expansion and moisture absorption.

Master bath

New paper up, mohagoney ceiling with recessed led’s and under mount strips ready to go in

Master before

Partially redone

wall paper up, port bed extended to fit queen  mattress, tons of space in the cabinet underneath the extension., chest of drawers cut down to fit under overhang on starboard pedestal, tihis will be a space for luggage as well as the drawers. I have 45 degree led strips under the overhangs which shine light out and away from the wall. There is also an led sconce On the wall at the end of the walkway between the pedestals. The wireless switches allow multiple switches to control the same lights so there will be a switch by the door as well as at the bed. There will be a small built in nightstand at the end of the walkway with outlet for phone chargers. I also added an outlet in top of the aft mantel for a small table fan.
