    How about chips and spilled beer. No Post deserves rocks.

    Been a while since I posted an update on the restore, scratched off a few wish list items this spring/summer: Starting with port/starboard fish-boxes:

    Now, just got to finish up the starboard tackle center and install additional tackle center/garbage bin underneath the mezzanine seating and the cockpit is done. I might get to that this winter.

    Fantastic work, Daniel, I would dream to be at the same stage... How did it take you overall?

    For some reason it does not look like ply in the photo, here is a closeup:

    Looking good! I know my buddy's '79 had balsa cored deck. We replaced lots of rot under the fighting chair.

    I grew up on a 75 42' and the cockpit deck was just teak planking over framing. No fiberglass liner. I think that has all been replaced since the factory build. Only fiberglass on ours was the hull, bridge sides and helm station.
