We're still here in VA working hard on the repairs, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
The old lower molding, which had rotted, has been replaced with trex, a synthetic decking lumber. Once we polish the old bronze rub rail and put it back on you'll never know the difference - except it won't rot again.
We've added a mini bow sprit to hold an anchor roller.
The new skeg is mounted on the bottom and is just waiting for clear weather so we can prime and paint it.
The starboard side bilgeboard has been completely rebuilt and is just waiting for prime and paint.
The old motor bracket had developed a crack, so we are replacing that too.
It's coming along. It won't be long now.
