    My lastest project was attempting to bird-proof our upper deck after finding a truckload of bird poop upstairs last weekend. We have lots of bugs, and that means we have about a bazillion swallows. The poor sailboat owner's boats are plastered too. But our problem is the canopy trusses make great bird perches...





    I figure about 30 birds can fit themselves on each truss, and there's 12 trusses. Took over 2 hours with the powerwasher to clean up the mess.

    So I spent $14 on tarps and took care of the problem...





    Checked the boat after 4 days, and not a drop of poop under the canopy now.

    Took out the Lectra/San units and re-plumbed the heads to the holding tank

    Bath/Head remodel is almost done!! woo-hoo!

    New genset waterpump installed

    Next up a brand new Good Automatic Windlass.

    We've spent a ton of money in getting this boat rehab'd and we're almost done!! Absolutely worth it.. I think...

    Ditch,

    Did you go with MotionWindows? What kinda price were they for the larger sliders? How long was the wait time?

    JT..

    We were lucky that the windows were more or less in good condition and we only needed to disassemble and clean them.

    After looking at earlier pics it looks like the stock windows as it is a newer boat. I have been trying to determine when to replace my windows and what kind of cost.
