Very nice. Too nice. Da*n you. Just kidding. What did you insulate it with? Looks like the material Scamp uses.

And what did you use to insulate the door?

Thanks for the photos. And welcome!

Very nice redo. Also, excellent photography.

Did you laminate your table yourself? Where did you get the laminate and the edging?

Well I don't know you but I already hate you. Man, what a wonderful job. I wish I had your energy. Few questions:

1) The battens over the insulation - how did you do that? materials?
2) Under cabinet and other LED's - 12 volt, 110 volt or batteries?
3) Is that cork flooring? Glue down, loose?
4) What is the material over the silver insulation?
5) Can you post a close up of the cabinet door latches?
6) Whatever else I didn't ask - lol.

Again, super job!

Thank's for the likes. The Gelcoat is original. Cleaned it up a bit and tested out a wetsand on a small section in the front. The gel coat is kinda thin in some areas though. I think I might paint it in the spring using the interlux brightside roll and tip technique...

Been working on the Boler off and on part time for the last two months. It's gone quick some far. Couple longe saturdays on it.

Gotta do some wiring and stuff too yet. Bought a 1500W inverter. want to make sure I have some decent power off the grid if needed.

Overall the Boler was well taken care of in the past for a 73.

Again, super job!

1) the battens are just left over material strips cut into 1.5" thick and glued on top of the seams with 3M 77 glue.
2) under cabinet is the orrig light. The rest are simply battery LED's. I have some in the cupboards also.
3) yup, cork laminate flooring from homedepot. Glued down with strong floor double face tape...each sections glues to each other also.
4) The material on the walls is Marine Hull liner from Perfect Fit.com ( cheap and easy stretches in 3 directions )
5) I don't have a close up photo of the latch. came with I simply re-used them. seem them at home depot though also.
6) Did the table laminate myself. was the least fun part. laminate and chrome edging also from home depot. I should have been sponsored from home depot by now. My wife sew'd all the cushions and curtains for me. She had never sewn before. She did amazing for her first time.
