I installed teak decking over the glass and replaced the plastic steering wheel with a proper wooden one.
I had the time of my life on it for over a decade and used up several lives.
Ended up selling it to a friend who got a job caretaking a house on one of those small Islands, where the owners spent the winters in warmer climates.
He ended up getting the boat swamped and shipwrecked in a storm, managing to barely escape in a rubber tender.
Since then, I always had friends with boats of different sizes that do more than satisfy my nautical desires.
