Full list of SV LIMA projects (done, in progress, planned)

Full DIY boat project list of SV LIMA

We do a lot of projects on SV LIMA as you can imagine. A boat from 1990 requires enduring maintenance. We are happy sharing all of it with you. Either to give you inspiration and guidance for your own boat projects or just for entertainment. 

On the list below you find all our projects we are going to do. Some of them are done. Some are work in progress and some are in planning status. The list hopefully gives you an overview on the all projects.
