Here's some progress photography on this project, if you're still following this thread. Stripping the inside was tough ... based on what I saw on a previous thread I think the builder might have finished the interior with urethane resin instead of varnish. Oh well, it's going to be varnish now! Also, I'm looking for a replacement nameplate for this boat, in case I (possibly, probably, definitely) damage it trying to remove it from the deck. Should I try to call the elusive and aging Albert Maw again?
