Removed the first one today, and it was stuck down in places so hard I had to slice it off with a blade.
Wood is in pretty poor show, I'll strip the old finish, repair the damaged piece and epoxy coat and spar varnish, you won't recognize it I hope,lol
Mayhem...if you are handy enough to make the repairs, why not just make new pieces? I would think it would easily qualify as a "low buck" project and the outcome would be new instead of "fixed".
