Thanks Charlie (everyone)- let me know if there any issues with the new wiring (do not expect any; however, none the less). At any rate glad I was out there - and yep she is coming along pretty fine. Wish I was making as much progress; but, at least now I have an excuse(s) for the time being...

Have fun...

How do you plan to "seal" the decks? Are you going to apply fibreglass, clear epoxy, or something else?

And what did you decide in the end to do with the chainplates? Are you going to go with exteriors?
Thanks John. The back is better this week and has recovered from my tweaking it last week. Jody's a good pal. I'm putting down CPES to seal and then going with Sanitred over that as it's waterproof, UV proof and flexible. I have an idea about that chainplate and adding exterior isn't on the list. She came around the horn the wrong way with the one's she has so I think they'll be fine.

And the refit continues...

I've finally finished sanding the deck after pulling the canvas and the varnish removal is 98% done.



The decks were ok except that one chainplate area.



The foredeck is good...



and aft is better than I thought it would be.



Now it's time to sand and seal the bright work, finish stripping the hull, pull the sticks and the engine. I'm gonna seal the deck too before applying the Sanitred.
