Plugging, Faring and refastening

 Port side Faired!!
 Looking Good!
Including the Transom :)
 I was able to purchase teak from a nice retired couple in Olympia

 Enough teak to complete out the interior

 My Sister Vickie came by and picked up the old Iron.
 I calculated the total weight was about 8000 lbs!
 Chris the master woodworker :)
We really appreciate the help of Chris. He has worked very hard this week

Today we finished taking out all the old Iron ballast in the bilge by taking 2 planks out. Then cleaned out the bilge and now replacing the planks

 Chris and I had a workout getting all the old rusty iron out of the bilge

 Had to take out 2 planks to get the larger iron rounds out.

 Even Dino and Neo came to help :)

 New plank to put back where we took the iron ballast out.
