Wes,
Here are the promised photos.














You can see that you have to lift your tiller for access but that's no big deal. You can also see the pockets, or lockers, within the gunwale in the last photo.

tommays will become famous soon enough
I have done it on a 16 and 18 ' Donzi powerboat that had steel fuel tanks under the fiberglass liner So there was no other way to go


The good thing was they have boat lift rings in the deck that made it easy to lift


The bad news is the better the boat is made the harder it is to get apart ,Donzi glasses the joint as a final step and it had to be cut while doing a handstand

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

runner is on a distinguished road
The one I just tried had several places where the top was glassed to the bottom of the hull. All the way around the top and then at two bulkheads and several other places. There was no simple way to pull the top without cutting something up. It is about half way into the trash bags in little pieces. My grandson showed up to visit gramps, so I did not get it all the way cut up.
Pick your fights. The boat needed an impact crack repaired about 10 inches long. The glass was cracked around where the mast steps. The foam under the bow storage area and under the floor was pellets like those in a bean bag chair. Maybe when the boat was new the glass was strong enough to be supported by loose pellets, but no longer. So far I have not found a single wood stringer. The stringers and supports were formed around foam. To fix this boat would have required lots and lots of work while I don't even have the original mast, rigging, or sails. It can be purchased in sailing condition for about 1500$
I am going to restore a boat, but I want a usable boat to start with!
