Ocarina II is on a distinguished road
Do yourselves a favour and pick up a copy of Casey's 'This Old Boat'. I consider it the best DIY guide available. Informative and inspirational. Many jobs on boats call for rather specific techniques and materials. Avoid having to do things twice by doing them right the first time. Plexi and acryllic ports need the correct silicone bedding, some chemicals in Sikkaflex,for example will react with the plastic and cause crazing. I learned the hard way.
