With the exception of a few items, most notably the installation of new helm chairs, Bella is ready for her spring cruise. Over the course of the winter she has had all her closets and drawers lined with cedar, the cockpit deck overlaid with teak planking, consolidation of cockpit deck hatches, all her brightwork put in Bristol condition, some teak trim work for accent, new name plates, and a new teak bow pulpit. Got to call it quits for the summer.
The following are some photos of her restoration.
This is photo showing the old bow pulpit. I always thought it looked like my thumb stuck on the bow of the boat
The new teak pulpit is sure to be a focal point
Just installed without hardware
Prior to installation and just after applying final coat of varnish
Deck furniture all spit and polished and ready for cocktails
Release Marine Helm Chairs should be here by Memorial Day Weekend
After the Helm Chairs are installed I will post a few more.
