Wood Restorer Needed

Hi.

The brightwork on our 1967 classic sailboat is shot... Fiberglass body, but trim is mahogany and teak. We are looking for someone to restore it. Any recommendations greatly appreciation. We are on the Westchester shore of the Long Island Sound.

Great fall/winter project!

Thanks!

Head up to the Maite Boats and Harbors show in Rockland ME. There will be tons ofyards and shops there that can do the work. Just grab a copy of the magazine. You'll find many in the adds.

Thanks!
I feel your pain brother. I have a large ornate block of mahogany at the front of the cockpit railing that is curved and having a heck of a time finding material to make a replacement. My boat is also a 1967 model (sailstar corinthian), and the fiberglass hull is quite thick and heavy. I enjoy the blend of pretty wood with the ease of hull maintenance of fiberglass.
Good luck with the project, and take lots of before and after photos and show us here later. Bruce
