Previously: PART 16: LOTS OF PICTURES
Continued from post 16, here is more on the head and tank system:
|Lid screwed down |
|Top hoses are two vents, bottom hoses are waste in and out lines.|
|New Raritan PHC head.|
|Tank outlet to 1 1/4" thru-hull.|
|Inlet from head to tank, connects to standpipe inside tank, eliminating unsightly hose on outside of tank.|
|The "New Kid", a Raritan PHC.|
I've got the cockpit locker lids partially done:
|Mahogany ply and solid wood edging.|
|Cutting plugs off.|
With warmer and drier weather here at last I'm returning to the exterior paintwork, starting with the decks and cockpit area, using System Three water bourne WR-LPU paints.
Well, we're one-boat-owners again as "Sin Tacha", our Albin Vega, has passed to a new custodian. Although I wasn't looking for a buyer until the Ballad was finished, the right person showed up and has given her a new home in Port Orchard, Washington.
I miss escaping boat work to enjoy a bit of sailing, but it's freed me up to concentrate on getting "Bennath" finished ... hopefully for the 2013 Pacific Northwest Albin Vega Rendezvous in September 10-11.
Your work on the Albin Ballad looks awesome. I purchased Albin Vega, Mahina (John Neal's Hull #322). I am currently looking to restore and "rescue" Mahina. I am pulling it out from the Anacortes Marina this June, and hope to grind the exterior paint coats before I go to Alaska sailing as crew for a small flotilla. I would really like to speak and meet up with you at the Rendezvous this September to share my plans, and get suggestions and advice.ReplyDelete
