Renovation project 2017

Postby Antti_DD » Wed Mar 22, 2017 9:18 pm

Dolphin Dance's renovation project started last week and here are some photos of the first phase. I will update this thread with some more photos along the way.

About the teak deck project: We have had minor but persistent leak via the starboard deck drain into the cockpit locker and I have tried to fix the leak quite many times without success, so now it was time to replace all the seams on the deck which look suspicious. Also the starboard chainplate had leaked previously and although I had managed to fix the leak, I decided to have the chainplate area checked and replace the seams. We also found, that some teak slats around the fore hatch were loose (DD's deck is not original HR deck, but it is glued down without screws), so those are replaced as well at the same time. After this work is done, the deck is sanded.

As DD is now in a professional boatyard, I decided to have the stripes re-painted and also the topsides are polished.

Dolphin Dance is now back in water after the winter (almost a month earlier than usually, but the bay is already free of ice).

I am very pleased with the outcome: the blue stripes were painted to the newer 'HR blue' and the improvement is clearly visible compared to the old ones. Also the topsides were polished and teak deck was lightly sanded after the recaulking.

Congratulation Antti.
What a beautiful job you have done there. The hull looks like new !!!
May I ask you the polishing scheme used to achieve a so nice result ?
Tentation is now 2 weeks from returning to water .
This winter I have been busy installing a holding tank, an AIS transponder and changed the engine controls.
Removed and re-installed both starter and alternator for check.
Next week I'll proceed with de-winterising the engine and checking if everything is in good working conditions.
Wishing you happy sailing .
Robert

As said and with some delay :roll: here are some view of the holding tank installation.
For the time being it is only a simple gravity discharge installation, with provision for a future through deck pump-out once at a marina.
