HI Danny,

Best to draw out what you want to achieve first - we started the refit out on our seamaster commodore 28 in Dec 05 and are only half way there! Thats with every weekend too! If they haven't done so already I recommend lining the boat with some fiberglass type insulator. Wickes is best for value, though go for 50mm. Ply is much cheaper from them too. Lay all wiring in for your lights etc first, and make sure it all works before sealing them in under fillings and ply! Next, take trip to IKEA! We have just got our kitchen units (butchered until they fit into hull shape, and bought (for very reasonable price) from Jone's in St Ives a new gas cooker and twin burner cooker. Things to look out for are leaky windows. If they are showing signs of wet, don't waste time and money with sealants, remove them sand all old crud off and re-seat using black mastic which comes on a roll, cut off the excess over the next few weeks as it squeezes into many crevices which were letting in water. If there is no pumped water, give thought to that too - whether you can get hot water in - a great advantage if you can do it. Lastly, the best way we found for layout ideas was to trawl the net, and boatyards and then adapt to what might work for you. if you need any more help or ideas please feel free to e-mail myself or Haydn ( long suffering hubby!) and we will try to help. Best regards and Luck Jan & Haydn (Tarka Dal)
