|Removing the lining. Note black mold.|
Anyway, I peeled off the material and tomorrow I will sand off the contact glue. My plan is to paint the area (which is the fiberglass hull) good honest 2-part marine paint. I'll sand and repaint the non-fiberglass white areas with ordinary enamel paint, and re varnish most of the wood. I'll do similar work in the galley area, but have no immediate plans for the ceiling, to which I want to make extensive changes when I return to Oz.
After I've done the starboard side I'll clear the port side and give it a similar treatment. Instead of the galley there will be the navigation station.
That being done I'll go into the V-berth and go berserk ripping out the moldy lining. My manic laugh will reverberate throughout the marina.
