Dulce, two week update

It's been two weeks since we started on Dulce. Here are some shots of the progress.

Here's some shots of the rotted transom framing.





















The hull is cleaned up.















This boat has more shyte work done on it then any boat I've ever had this misfortune to work on.

There's supposed to be mahogany in there...







Okay....











WTF were they thinking?

Thank you for reminding me why I have a fiberglass boat. Wood is beautiful if it's done right, but way too much work for the average owner.

She worth the effort Charlie ?

I guess you and/or the owner think so.

At what point would you advise owner to walk away ? How close is she to that point ?

I would've advised this owner to walk away from this boat. However, she has no choice. This is to be her home in Juneau. So, w'e'll put it right for a rediculous bid.....


Sometimes, doing the right thing makes no sense.....
