recently purchased LH38
I just bought "Alls Well" , a LH 38, after contemplating a Bristol 38.8. I do agree that the LH's are nicer detailed inside, but it would have been nice to have that skeg-hung rudder and a redirected center-board pole to free up the salon table. As far as the teak decks, I enjoy the functionality and looks of a teak deck, so the extra maintenance required is a trade-off for sure. And of coarse there will be some work required to bring the decks up to par.
Actually, "Alls Well", which I have renamed her "allswell, Tio", is hull #27 and she actually is a Lien Hwa boat. How much difference this makes...? any thoughts?
also, has anyone tried to replace the "sen" wood veneer? I do have some water staining damage that I want to fix and I'd like to find some of this wood. If you have any leads.
