The teak remained painted for at least 5 years. It was that way when he sold it. Don't know what the new owner did.

The new owner wasn't very experienced. He was surprised that the dinghy outboard went swimming after he leaned it up against the boat at the dock...

I never cared for that boat very much. But she did keep my Dad safe.
