Deck Repairs 5

The toe boards now get the restoration treatment, and apart from 1 piece that connects to the forward port bulwark that was rotten, all in fairly good order, except for a few drying cracks, that have to be filled, before priming. Then on to the Aft deck, luckily the aft hatch takes up 50% of the deck area and that is already done!
