We've spent most of our time working on the outside of the boat. That work is just about done so it's time to start work on the inside. I've been slowly doing little things. Back in the day when this boat was made Formica was the choice for counter tops. It was a durable product that every kitchen had. Someone thought it would be good for boats too so this boat had all the flat surfaces cover in the stuff. I work with cedar strips building canoes and other boats from the strips so it was a natural extension to do cedar stripped tops in the boat. Since the dinette table was missing I made that first. One inch thick cedar strips glued and fiberglassed. After the table I made a motor cover. Then came the little table that hangs down from the sink area. The last item is the shelf that holds all the nicknack things your bring aboard.
I tried to refinish the teak floor but it is badly stained and I don't think it's going to clean up. That's another story.

Another great day on the water. Wind was about 15 from the south. We close reached all the way to the Chester river.
The knot meter was bouncing between 5-9 and 6.3
I actually got to test my hiking seat. It passed with flying colors. I have an adjustable hiking stick attached to the tiller. I'm taking orders!!i
