Sweet Pea Update – Interior Almost There
Sorry Horrice, we got us a Sweet Pea update. This past week, we got two coats of paint in her interior, after cleaning mold and all sorts of stuff from the humidity and sitting. We also had her cushions done in a fabric that blends with the stock original flormica counter tops. My concept was in a small space, the less the better in colors. Let the small stuff be the fun stuff.
We also got the fridge going, water leaks in the plumbing and toilets figured out.
We are taking longer cruises and the Boatress and family sure love a slow cocktail cruise and dinner out on the bay.
Old wooden cruisers are a lot of work, but so worth the effort. She looks fantastic. Happy and relaxing cruising.
I can’t help it. I am just plain envious. Great job ! Suzy rules the waves.
Wow! She has come a long way since I saw her a couple months ago. Great job! If you leave tomorrow, you should be able to get up to Clayton in time for the show!
GREAT story and pics…that is one neat boat in a neat place.
Can’t wait to race her in my Fairchild Scout 30….I made 6.5 knots crossing the bay to Onancock….eat my spray suckers!

Sweet Pea looks great! Love the tweedy gray fabric and the Suzy Step.
That is one “Sweet” pea of a boat, looks like its going to be a lot of fun.
Nice job! I love the Suzy step!
Love the interior with the color pops being the cushions. I prefer eggshell finish on the paint to reduce the reflection. I love the Susie step!
You have reached the stage in life where the runabout is great, but it’s nice to have a head, and a place to make a sandwich, and take a nap. A lot of us here in the Northwest realized that some years ago with more availability of not expensive, old cruisers.
The next thing to be installed will be the automatic pilot with a joystick. Trust me, I know it’s coming!
The boat looks great – lots of wonderful memories ahead on that one! I’ve had one of the same little ships wheel lamps since I was a kid. 🙂
… there is nothin’, absolutely nothin’ as much fun as foolin’ around in a boat (with an enclosed head)!
Matt— could you please email me.
I need your help with something.
