After many years of service the cabin sides and roof started to leak and it was seen as the best way to sort out the problem was to remove the deck and investigate the cause of the problem and see if it could be a simple job.
However, upon investigation it was found that the problem was to large to get away with a simple repair job.
So it was decided that the cabin and then the cabin sides would get removed and the whole lot would be renewed.
This photo shows the boat with the roof and cabin sides removed, in the end it was easier than I was expecting it to be and found out why it had started to leak in the first place.
So the next job now is to machine the egdes of the new mahogany boards and glue them together so that we can start to rebuild the cabin sides and get the new roof on and get the cabin sealed up.
