Restoration project began in earnest today. Mast has been unstepped and boat placed on jacks in the boatyard. Tradesmen will next remove all hardware & fittings in preparation for resurfacing the deck & topsides.
I can see her now with shiny cream-colored gel coat, burgundy boot & cove stripes and new green bottom paint. The planned non-skid will be an open weave glass mat embedded into the deck gel coat and glassed over with resin (very sharp looking and easy on the knees).
