Restored Cape Dory Typhoon (Daysailer-open cockpit)
I bought this Cape Dory Typhoon for a project boat. It had been left in a boatyard for 6 years. I undertook restoring her to her former glory.
The following work has been done:
Plywood forepeak bulkheads were removed and replaced with fiber glass laminated Coosa board.
The aft forepeek bulkhead was repaired using Coosa board and retabbed on each side.
Redecked the forepeak with laminated Coosa board, tabbed and faired.

Glassed the cockpit deck and seats with two layers of 1708 glass and faired.

Primed inside with Total Boat primer, three coats and top coated with Total Boat Wet Edge, white, three coats. Applied two coats of Total Boat Nonskid (gray).
Sanded and faired the hull.
Primed the hull with Total Boat Expoxy Barrier Primer,three coats.
Painted the hull above the waterline with Total Boat (flag blue) four coats.
Painted the bottom with Total Boat bottom paint (40% copper) 2 coats.

Installed G10 backup plates for all hardware.

Installed bronze fasteners for all the bronze hardware (cleats & bracket mounts) and teak installation.

Replaced the teak rub rail and toe rail, coaming boards, aft cockpit trim, and kicker board with new teak (some new & some new old stock).

Replaced the stand up blocks.
Cleaned and polished bronze hardware.
Serviced the Lewmar winches.

The trailer has new drums, brakes, brake accuator, keel board & bunk boards.

The boat came with a jib and a mainsail.
I have not attended to the standing rigging or the running rigging.

I enjoyed restoring this boat.
I think that it is good for another 20 - 30 years.
$12,000. Located in Lumberton Mississippi.
