Hull and Cabin Sole Coating

Extending Cabin Sole into Head and Brightening up Cargo Hold

The Southern Cross 28 featured a fiberglass shower pan. It was weak and limited access to the hull beneath, so we removed it, fiberglassed in two new floor bulkheads, custom fitted a 3/4" plywood floor that extends into the v-berth, and also replaced the lower portions of the main and v-berth bulkheads (see clamps). Also note the clean "cargo hold" once infested by the diesel motor, now squeaky clean with a new Sani-Tred heavy duty, non-skid floor.


Non-Skid Deck Paint

We used Sani-Tred paint on our deck. We are producing a video review of Sani-Tred and the application process. If you're considering painting your deck, you will not want to miss it.

Removing Latex...

Please don't tell me we're out of Sam Adams Black Lager.

A day spent removing the latex paint in the cabin and v-berth as well as extending the cabin sole into the former engine compartment results in a plea for pity from MAL.
