The paint looks ok in the picture, not as good in real life. Here is the stuff I plan on doing and the order:

Remove all deck hardware, windows
Prep and paint hull and deck
Reinstall/replace deck hardware/windows as needed
New companion entrance door
New companion entrance combing

And in no particular order:
all new running rigging
some standing rigging
needs a (used) outboard motor
repair or replace mainsail cover
replace tiller arm
Re-tab some plywood bulkheads inside (bilge area)
The bowrail is missing

That sounds pretty good. Thats pretty much the same thing I am going through right now with my project boat.

How is your keel? Does it need refinishing?
Thats just one of the things I have to do that isnt on your list. But if it doesnt need it then good for you!

Looks like you may have it planned pretty well, dont get discouraged.

Looks like a nice little boat. I am working on a 16 footer that was much rougher than what you got.

No idea about the keel. Won't know until I splash her in the spring.

Ok, first task is to fix some holes in the transom. All above the water line. The PO had a BBQ mount braket here. There are similar holes where a OB motor was mounted . The transom is about 1.5" thick ply core fibreglass. The plan is to countersink these holes on both sides of the transom with a countersink bit and fill the holes from both sides with Bondo (autobody filler). The countersink will help keep the filler in place. Then sand smooth.

These windows (dead lights?) will be removed.

Option 1 is to clean the frames, repaint them black, then clean or replace the lexan. Reinstall with SS screws and sealer.

Option 2 is to just replace with smoked lexan mounted externally with ss screws and no frames.

I will see how the frames look once removed.

Here is the companion way opening. The PO removed the combing and put on this decent looking and handy 2 part doorway. The trouble is the gap between them keeps no rainwater out. My plan is to install some combing and make a new slide out one peice companion way door.

Nice looking project boat. Looks like you got a great deal. I live in Tennessee and dream of one day sailing my 1972 O'Day 23' pop top sailboat on Lake Huron. I have some property about 12 miles from Lake Huron in Presque Isle Michigan. Bonadventure

use thickened epoxy instead. bondo won't create a decent water-proof seal with the plywood and it will get wet and then delaminate.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
