    I hate it when people walk away from a thread and don't finish. Now I see why. they do it. In all my 'busyness' I soft of forgot about this.

    Quick history. I stopped work on the boat to prepare out house for sale. We bought an RV and moved it to the land we bought. Built a new garage/temporary shop to work out of. Then lots of odd jobs preparing the property ect. Then I was finally able to get back on the boat.

    Lots of progress since them. I will just post a few photos to catch up.



    Temporary work space. Much smaller and had to put a lot of tools and boat parts into storage. But I do have a space to work!





    Started to strip all the peeling paint off the boat. That was what seems like a never ending job!





    I tried to organize and clean up the wiring while the decking was off. Looked like a rats next under there and still not great but at least I can trace wires fairly easy.





    Then I got lucky and found some plywood locally on Market place. Made my new decks.




    Rolled her up on side. Stripped and painted the bottom.

    Since I work by myself it was easier than trying to fully roll it over. Made working on the bottom MUCH easier.

    Jumping ahead to last week.






    Taking time to clean up the shop and transition from finishing now. Next step it clean and paint the engine.

    Then I get to go back to the fun stuff. Repairing and refinishing all the trim and putting the interior back together.

    She's looking good!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
