Thanks SailAway,

Ive looked at Jim's gallery on a daily basis since I bought the boat. While mine isnt quite as rough, pretty much everything that he did for Aurora I hope to do for [name tbd].

Unfortunately refurbing the well would mean pulling the bottom & top covers, filling the holes adding the backerboard to the well, and dropping a fairly greasy outboard in my cockpit I also have a youngun who I would like to keep away from the motor.....I have however read the perils of the prop & rudder.

Hopefully as I can put work into the boat, I can fix up the well and get a newer 4-stroke to drop in the well. In the mean time, reinforcing the transom *seems* to be the quickest way to get the boat in the water and sailing.....

Ill give the bleach solution a shot....what is non skid wax comprised of? Im assuming that it wouldnt make the deck as slippery as snot! Where can I find "woody" wax?

Thanks!
