11M Interior Overhaul - Part II

A little more progress on the salon. I still need to complete the starboard side window treatments and install indirect lighting. I've already prewired.

Re: 10 Meter Bow Cushion Ideas

My previous bow cushions had tabs sewn into the sides of the cushion that snapped into stainless snaps on the deck. The problem with the system is the tabs kept ripping at the seam on the side of the cushions. Here is a pic of the previous cushions. http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z477/hhaynes61...

Re: 11M Interior Overhaul

We sanded, cleaned, etched and painted the interior window frames as well. We also tinted the windows, made corner panels and redid the side bolsters, but haven't installed them yet. http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z477/hhaynes61/PhotoJul14125027PM_zpsb06350f1.jpg On the port side I ripped out t...

Re: 11M Interior Overhaul

The refrigerator was on its last leg (slightly louder than the diesel generator). The foam backed vinyl on the walls was terrible, the galley was very outdated. The dinette fabric/foam was crunchy sunbrella, etc. We ended up ripping just about everything out. Scraping the foam off the walls was a ro...

Re: 10 Meter Bow Cushion Ideas

I have bow cushions on my 11M. I've had them since I bought the boat 2 years ago, and just had replacement cushions made. The new cushions are a bit shorter than the 8 ft cushions I had. I also have a modified tie down system for the new cushions, using a track on the forward end instead of snaps th...

Re: Window shade color thoughts

We tinted all of the windows including the windshield. Made a huge difference. We still use a bra on the 'shield.

Re: Been a while

Re: Radar & MFD

I recently installed 2 Simrad MFDs, an NSS 12 and an NSS7, along with a Simrad 4G radar. The system is outstanding and very competitively priced. There is a ton of good electronics info on the Hulltruth electronics forum.

Your bilges look great. I'm working on mine as well. BTW, you can get Simple Green Extreme from homedepot.com with FREE shipping. I ordered a case last week (4 gallons) for approx. $78 and received it today.
