Have taken a break from the “big boat” to continue on the tender. Have been removing the paint from the hull. Using my boat cradle that I made last week, and have turned the tender upside down.
Have decided to remove the paint from the top 4 boards only and depending on how they look once sanded will decide if I will paint or polyurethane. Have found already a few places where fiberglass has been used to repair cracks in boards so we will see if these can be repaired.
Other cracks in the hull appear to be in the fiberglass which appears to have been applied to the boards below the waterline. These I have been cleaning out and sanding.
