B24 restoration continues....

What better place to keep a log than here?

Today I ended up cutting about a 4 ft section of deck today due to what I thought was some "light" core delamination. What wasn't rotted, was at least wet. I ended up cutting from the chainplate up to roughly 18" forward of the stanchion. Tomorrow I'll let it dry out in the sun, put a heat lamp on it, and see how it goes.

Who's idea was it to restore an old bristol?

On a lighter note, the interior is coming clean rather quickly. And the repairs needed on the keel are going to be easier than expected.

I'll have some pictures of the damage tomorrow.
