Still haven't met with insurance guy, but itching to start fixing up the Dolphin. I have been cruising through the forums checking out rebuilds and renos. Boy, there are some truly talented and knowledgeable people here!
A few questions while I ponder my course of action:
1- my bench seats are wider at the top than at the bottom. Since I will definitely need to replace the panels is there any reason not to make them straight up and down and put kitchen cabinet doors instead of panelling?
. Thinking 2 coats of either Kilz or BIN, then some kind of waterproof or mold resistant paint
for all wood parts.
3- thinking of converting front bench to a mini dinette, but raising the seat about an inch to accommodate a higher flushable porta potti.
I am sure lots of people have done all these things. Any negatives that I should consider?
