Been a while!
16 August 2017
Yet another massive delay, yet another effort to rekindle the restoration. After much todo a pad of concrete was laid next to the house and CL has been moved in. I found that the boatyard was simply too far away to get things done in the small snippets of time I have available. Still need to get a decent ladder in for access, but the boat is here and I have power onboard. Several projects that have been on hold in the house have been completed to give me time to work on the boat.
My new plan begins with watertight integrity topside. After every rainfall I have to pump out the bilge, it's time to put a stop to that. Step 1 is going to be getting a cover on the boat, step 2 is going to be redoing the deck.
- Everything comes off and gets rebedded
- Toerail is getting removed altogether
- New companionway
- New ports all-around
- Glass over teak winch mounts
- Remove excess hardware
- New pulpit and stern rails / lifeline stanchions
- Anchor bowsprit
- Prep bow for windlass installation
Time to jump in and get busy...
