The Starling Project - Part 4

 Eleven foot Starling Class yacht - Upside down and ready for the belt sander.

The plywood in the bow where there are some very hard curves show no signs of rot so hopefully this area won't require replacement.

In the stern area and on both topsides there are places where large sections will require new plywood.

This is a worry because parts of the transom and its framing may need replacing.

None of this would be have happened if the previous owners had simply put the boat in dry storage.

I am toying with the idea of perhaps taking all the plywood off as I have done with the deck and be done with it. Simply replace all the plywood on the boat. We will see.
