Vessel is currently out of the water, needs new zincs, hull under keel cooler needs inspection/repair.
Portside cover board need replaced.
Bulwarks and guard need to be replaced.
Fuel tanks need to be cleaned/repaired.
I have most of the stuff to finish this project, 6 20+feet 8x 8 beams to be cut for hull/deck/bulwark material.
Tank and rams for steering conversion.
Most fasteners and bolts for bulwarks.
Major repair/renew work was done in 2003, the bow, foredeck, and anchor hosepipe were renewed, all bad wood was removed/replaced.
When after the normal leaking and re-swelling, a slow seep was identified as coming form the area that is under the keel cooler, caulking needs to be reefed out and redone.
