Deck Repairs 3

Now we have the Hatches done, and the Aft bulwarks are coming on, we turn our attention to the forward deck. This has to be stripped, repaired, filled, primed and then Calked. It is the biggest single area of decking and of course gets the most of the sea spray!  Also on the fore deck is the Windlass and the Cowl vents that both need repairs & restoration.
