Boat looks like it is coming along well. Good job on the decks, although I do love the look and feel of teak decks. It really is a shame to see one get wasted like that. And, I have to argue that in hot weather a nice damp teak deck feels better on my feet. But if you have to then it looks like you are doing it right.

Keep the pictures coming. It is inspiring.
