Electronics - GPS Chart plotter, TV, Stereo, AIS-VHF (Done) (2012)

Polyglow and Kiwigrip - Polyglow really worked great on the Alradee-Chi, Kiwigrip is one of the best non-skid paints.  In June 2013 I started applying the Kiwigrip Nonskid.

Bow Sprit and Anchor Roller - Done in May of 2013.

New Cabin Cushions - The Cushions are fun to do, but very time consuming.  I decided to have Linthicum Sails make them in Spring of 2012.

Refinished Cabin Sole and new Bilge Covers - Last but not least, the floor will be refinished. I've started making the bilge covers.

Cabin Walls - Remove the moldy carpeting, paint with Zinsser, then cover with Western Red Cedar (done 2012), stained and redecorated May 2013.n
