Lots of Little Work equals some progress

This week we made progress on a lot of little tasks. None of these made me feel great about our progress, but getting many of them done was needed. We did some more awlwood preparation and applying the finish. We sanded the bowsprit again, and then applied primer to it. We found a serious problem with some stringers in the galley (Uggh). We also removed some old plumbing lines and removed some rotted cupboard bases.

Join us on our journey as we continue to rebuild, refit and prepare our Formosa 51 Sailboat for our continued cruising journey. We have always loved the Formosa, bought one (on a bit of a whim) late in 2014, moved aboard this one right away and started to do our refit while living board. We are avid fans of Cruising Outpost and Good Ole Boat (Good Old Boat) magazines and love the ideas we get from them.
