Winter project

It's January 1st 2016.   Got over to the boat just to check the bilge.  While there I looked at all the fake wood on the inside of the boat.   Back in the day when this boat was built laminate simulated wood grain was the hot thing.    Think 1966.  50 years ago!!  The seat uprights had this stuff on it and was pealing off.  So I took it all off.  Not sure where this is going to go.  The plywood it was attached to is not in bad shape.  I could sand what is there and then stain  and varnish.  The other option is to find some teak and redo what was there.   The old stuff came off in one piece so it could be used as a template.
