Today I began removing all that I could from the boat. All of the teak and mahogany will be sanded and varnished. Everything will be scrubbed. All of the hardware will be bagged and tagged for re-installation later.

Notice the patches under the cockpit benches. I don’t believe they’re “factory” so they will not be replaced. The bottom board on the port shelf is beyond repair as well as the plywood on the sides of the tables.

My plan is to keep the boat as original as possible.
