Stripped the cabin top and cockpit, modified the helm seat, added secondary winch mounts added cheek block mounts. I fabricated these mods from aluminum then bolted them to the boat, followed with epoxy/glass mat/cloth layers...etc. Modified the cockpit for control lines. Getting ready for coating the cabin top/cockpit. waiting for a weather window. In the mean time I'm fairng the hull and fixing some gelcoat surface cracks. I replaced the old teak deck with new in summer of '08. Its dirty now but will final sand and clean up real nice.
