Starting the REALLY Hard Part.....

On Saturday after the rainstorm I started the work to remove the remaining teak from the cockpit area...  I have NEVER attempted such a difficult job!  Some is like the area around the mast (all rotten) but most of it is stuck hard and fast to the deck...  I spent 2 hours on Saturday and this is what I accomplished:

Today I spent 3 hours after church and this is the progress today:


 

















At this rate I will be finished by CHRISTMAS!


My neighbor Ted C. brought the stairs over today on his tractor....  What a godsend! What a difference it makes climbing up and down the boat....  And when I get to working on the topsides and bottom it will make those jobs easier as well...  The stairs are on big casters that can be locked...
