Project Boats -- Where Do You Find Them?

Regarding the Hodj I''ve been looking for a while, but cannot find more information on the boat. She has very fast lines, and looks alot like an ex-racer.

The part of the headliner that needs to be replaced, is because I thought some water was leaking in from the deck, so I pulled a section to see if I could get closer. It was not leaking from any hardware installation, nor the mast step area, but I need to get closer. Replacing a wooden headliner is very easy.

Regarding the gelcoat peeler, I had two reasons for getting it.

1) I think a bottom job for any boat you are restoring, especially if you will be living on the boat all year long, is an absolute requirement, and

2) If you are doing a bottom job, a peeler is the way to go. It is alot easier, and substantially faster than either sanding or stripping. Also, any dust is caught by the vacuam attachment, so you are not damaging the environment.

I don''t have interior pics at this time, and frankmly won''t until it gets warmer in NY
