The boat being turned over in straps . The legs sticking out of the bottom are stands that are bolted into the stringers . The boat was supported on these while the bottom was being replaced . The battens on the sides are replaced and faired before the new sides go on .
The original side planking was ribbon stripe sapele . An African mahogany with a beautiful ribbon figure . I managed to find enough to re-plank the sides with . Although beautiful when finished the wood was extremely difficult to work with , and I can see why it was not used in a lot of boats .
Before the last coats of varnish the windshield frame is trial fitted to the deck . After a lot of fiddling filing and tweaking the frame was sent to the plating shop for chrome .
