I just painted my decks. Send me an email and I can show you my boat sometime (in SF) and tell you what I did and how I did it. There is info on rudder-play and wiring at this website. Take a look at the tips, found under articles. Hardware is expensive, so I would recommend to clean the winches (there is a little ring at the top, which you can pull out with a screwdriver. Once it is out you can lift the whole top off) and grease them. In most cases that will do the trick. If you have really old cleats you want them replaced. New lines are always a good idea. You don't want to break your halyard. APS and some other online stores sometimes have good deals. Make sure you get the right line (and length) which is commonly used for the purpose you use it for (APS lists such information - mostly for racing purposes).

As I said above, send me an email and come by some time, so you can get some ideas.

:: Hello,
::
:: I'm very glad to hear that I'm at least in the right
:: place.
::
::
:: All things considered, the boat seems to be in solid
:: condition. It's been years since the previous owner has
:: put much time, energy or money into her. To start, the
:: hull and top-side need to be cleaned and painted. The
:: rudder seems to be worn and in need of some attention.
:: Many of the lines should be replaced in the near future,
:: deck hardware like wenches and cleats need to be
:: replaced or cleaned, and wiring inside the cabin also
:: needs to be addressed. Beyond that, the issues are more
:: cosmetic than functional.
::
::
:: Where should start looking, or should I speak to about
:: some of these issues? Are there local swap-meats or
:: stores that you'd recommend?
::
::
:: More than anything, I'm just looking for ideas and
:: guidance. So any information that is offered up will be
:: greatly appreciated.
::
::
:: Thanks again, Steve
