ideas for snazzier interior
- This is probably a better question for Good Old Boat magazine. There are thousands of old boats with essentially the same look to their interiors. I've started thinking about how to add a little wow factor to our 8.7, but I don't have any good ideas. We've replaced upholstery and the headliner, sole, spruced up the other teak, but it's still basically the same. My aim is to make it feel more like we're going to a nice hotel or something when we go down those steps. Success could mean gutting the interior and starting over, but maybe there's a less involved remodel job that would work. Probably not just paint though. Has anyone else tried going down this path?
That’s right. The taste of the good beer, how smooth the scotch is, fishing off the stern at a slow troll, dolphins off the port bow and orca off the starboard. Lots of stuff other than stuff to argue about.
Harry, completely agree..... In 1900, human population 1 billion & change.... 2014, 7 billion with no end in sight.... on my boat the only rule for any excursions is "No politics, No religion"..... the penalty is "walking the plank!"

I am 4th generation Californian on my mom's side. Some of the family got here
before the gold rush, supposedly one of my several greats grandma's petticoat was
used to make the bear flag in the bear flag revolt. Nice story but probably not
true. I live in Alaska because I find it very difficult to deal with the press of
people and the change from the rural post WWII paradise I was raised in. Most of
the government issues you talk about come from too many people. There are huge
conflicts between user groups over resources in land, water and general environment
that just can't be reconciled, to many users. The regulations come from the desire
to protect the state from the pressures of the population. There is much much more
to this conversation but this is not the forum, not even in these doldrum days
Next time we are in the tavern together we can hash it out.
