All mahogany including windshield, fishing seat, captains bench and backrest, stern, top deck centerboard, dash and storage box are awaiting a complete overhaul by expert furniture maker Vin Zuccala of Manchester, NH. If i stripped and sanded, he would finish sand and do the rest...wait until you see the pictures of work done so far. Better than new!
Next up, heat/scrape/sand the inside transom, heat/scrape the hull and remove all paint, flip her, and do the same to the bottom. Once that's done, will move back to the inside to heat/scrape/sand the ribs, etc. When I flip her, the trailer will go to Tommy's at EC to get sandblasted and primed!
The rest of the chrome pieces are in great shape and don't need rechroming

Notice also, the brand new sheer strakes were installed along both sides, which also allowed Thad to bolt the stern corners square again. Progress is sweet after so much tearing, sanding, and stripping. Lots more to go.
