Bottom Scraping cont…

4th January 2019

A new year and still at it, although finished scraping and now started sanding down. I must admit it’s been a slog but starting to see the finish line although still a lot to do. Despite uncovering some concerning areas of “soft” wood which will require attention, the beautiful old mahogany is starting to emerge via gentle progressive sanding. Next steps are to complete sanding then onto remedial actions of applying wood preserver, filler etc.. Given the number of hours already spent I now really understand why there are more fibreglass boats than wooden boats!
