Hello all,

I took a little hiatus from the Whaler over the summer. Here in Houston the summers are pretty hot and working in my storage unit that was 130 degrees wasnít something I looked forward to. But since then I have made some progression on the boat. Itís tough to see what is really happening since it goes so slow. But here are a few items:
1) Tore out all the walls in the cabin with the exception of the rounded bathroom wall. That included the small electronics shelving they originally had in there, the kitchen cabinet, the storage closet, etc. Iíll be rebuilding all these with marine plywood, upholstered wood and teak veneer.
2) Iíve since rebuilt a completely new electronics cabinet with 4 shelves that should house all the Verado engine harnesses, my stereo amps, fuse boxes, circuit breakers, electronic wiring, inverters, etc. Painted the interior of that as well so it didnít look 30 years old!
3) Completely wired every electrical component in the boat and have everything sitting at the electronic cabinet waiting for fuse panels, distribution panels, etc.
4) Upholstered most of the interior cushions with new sunbrella from Sailrite. Broke down and bought the Sailrite sewing machine and itís amazing for upholstery, looks professional.
5) Upholstered side helm pieces.
6) Installed all hydraulic steering, steering column, steering wheel.
7) Fabricated all new fake carbon fiber dash panels to hold new switches, GPS/Sonar, Vessel View, fuel gauges(the only analog item on the boat).
8) Ran all new plumbing and pumps throughout. Macerator, bilge(4), washdown(fresh and saltwater), rear sink pumps, cabin pumps.
9) Sanded all cabin gunk off walls and ceiling, fiberglassed most imperfections that would look bad under foam and vinyl. The interior headliner and wall upholstery is my next big project which is happening in 2 weeks.
10) Ordered and received the acrylic lids for my rear Live wells and wash down sinks. All new hardware like faucets, etc. These look amazing even though I just stuck them in there for a minute to see what they look like.
11) Ran all rule lines too.

I have a photo bucket account and will place the link on here for pics. But itís been a productive 2017 so far. The end is in sight at least!!

Can you all let me know if Iím posting these Photobucket pics correctly? The first post was of the album and the second post was a single picture. Just wanted to make sure people were able to see them.

Thanks!

Chris

Thanks EJO. Yes, the boat is coming along rather well. Been working on it religiously for a couple weeks now. I have a June 1, 2018 date that Iím working towards to have everything done. But things generally take longer than we think they will!

Wanted to send an update on how Iím finally doing my cabin interior(ceiling and walls). I decided that Iím going to use vinyl and am both adhering the vinyl to the walls and putting up vinyl upholstered PVC board panels on the ceiling.

The cabin walls Iíve adhered 1/2 foam from Sailrite and am adhering the cream vinyl to the foam. Anything vertical within the cabin is being done like this as itís 1) easier to stick the vinyl pieces to the walls and 2) there are only a couple ways I can create a framework to screw the PVC board panels to. I canít screw a framework to the walls because the fiberglass isnít thick enough to get a screw in threre without having to go through to the outside. I could have fiberglassed a framework to the walls but that is so time consuming and I donít know if it will look any better. The ceiling however has 3/4Ē-1Ē of fiberglass so I can drill a screw in there for my framework.

With that said, I have the framework up on the ceiling and have created the templates for the PVC board panels. Surprisingly I only have to create 5 panels for the ceiling which has been nice. Iíve also got all the foam material on the walls and am just waiting to get the panels in place before I put the vinyl on the walls. That should be done here soon. But itís going to look pretty good. Iím taking pics throughout the process and will be posting those in a couple weeks!
