|The day of a lot of seagulls and the deposits they left behind quite a few years back|
|The way it looked once upon a time|
|The old doors on the bow|
|Before the bench was removed and the galley cut in half|
|Dusty new floor replacing the buckled delaminated wood with solid marine ply, as well as along the bottom of the walls where the old windows had allowed a lot of water to cause rot up to about, well, as high as that blue goes.|
|The old steps were pretty, curved pieces but very narrow and also rotten. The new steps are sturdy, deep and are hinged for storage and access to the stern lazarette.|
|The new galley configuration.|
|Dinette table re-installed. There will be a box shelf at the end, creating more storage space as well as a spot for plants under the window.|
|The old damaged flooring is being removed and the underlying fiberglass sanded. For now it will be painted until some new flooring is installed. Bamboo? Tile? Not decided yet.|
Big props to my son Elijah, who is making this all happen, at long last. There might be faster ways to get this done, but not any way with more love and care built in. That will last forever.
Have a teachable Tuesday. Do something transformably traditional.
