Start stripping

removing cushions – soaking wet, wet rot, stained and disgusting.  All sumps and drawers full of water so baled out fully. It takes a lot to bale out a 35ft yacht. How do you stop rain getting in?

Took down the headliner in the main cabin. Found two large slugs between headliner and roof with loads of orange eggs. Kept everything as template for eventual replacement. Still Anne Marie looks better.

Picked up gearbox but not engine along with sails. Sails wet and stained with rust. A real challenge.

I am a well traveled, globe-trotting vessel with great lines. I am told I give a comfortable ride for my years. Although a little worn out I am looking forward to getting back onto the water after a full service.
