I told all of you about not buying a new boat and remodeling ours. Well, we’re going to do just that starting August 31 of this month. We are dropping off our boat to a guy that can make your boat look like new. What are we going to do?
The first step is getting rid of all the carpets. When the boat was built in 2000 carpet was the thing to do. Well, it’s not anymore. Our boat will have faux light teak throughout below. Vacuum and damp mop. It’s bullet proof too. I can’t wait to have clean floors below. It’s almost impossible with carpets on a boat.
Next they are making us a new mattress. Nice and firm and then they are making fitted sheets and a bed covers. I already have boat pillows and they will redo them as well.
I’ve not decided on the colors yet, but this will give you an idea of what it will look like when it’s done. I can’t wait.
Now let’s go to the cockpit. There is carpet there that we have to take up several times a year and bring home to power wash. It just doesn’t stay clean either. I have hated it forever, but the alternatives were few. Well not anymore. There is a new product that again looks like teak that goes down the same as the carpet, but you can vacuum and then damp mop. No bringing them home to clean. I can’t wait.
So when we get the boat back on the 10th of next month there won’t be a piece of carpet anywhere. Did I tell you I can’t wait? I thought so.
Standby for the next phase of work. Not sure what we’ll do next, but we’ll figure it out at some point. I can’t wait.
