Margin planks are off

Yesterday Kyle and Marius came down to take off the margin planks. These were shot in places, particularly along the bow, and are to be replaced. This also means that bits of the planks can be used to patch the decks and the metal lip underneath them can be blasted and painted and replaced right at the prow of the boat.

I like it that Kyle can style out carpentry while wearing a panama!

Here is the teak that was removed – some bolt holes and a few raggedy bits but in the whole reusable.

And the edges at the stern once the margin planks had been removed.

And the pieces made from the old board that have been prepped to be used as inserts. You can see how well it cleans up with a bit of TLC. From this…

To this…

Minus this…
