Deck Repairs 9

Another bit of repairs done!  Deck "cover board" finally repaired all around boat.

Continuing on with the Fender boxes, think I can see the light on this part of the job!   Just the fender boxes to do around the bow (outboard of the bulwarks).

Then filling/sealing with Mastic (originally would have been white lead paste, but where a fitting has not been removed, just "filleting" around fitting to stop water ingress. Not original, but better for the structure of the boat in the long run.
