Thanks carl - but remember, boats ALWAYS look better in pics than they do in real life. I've just conveniently left the various stains, dings, etc. out of the frame.
That said, I'm pretty proud of her. She was seriously skanky when we opened that hatch for the first time. 1" of water over the sole, inside covered in mold, no cushions, no cubby covers, rusting crap all over the place, no functioning head or water, etc. She's come along way, but still has her wrinkles.
You did a great job. The marks, stains add character. I've seen worse over the past couple years and most of the boats cleaned up quite well. There's one basket case that won't sell. My buddy owned it before the 27, living aboard. When I first met him, while he was living on it, I was wading in 4" of water. He fixed that, sold it, it sold again, then guy basically abandoned it.
OP, send us pics at your leisure.
