Merva’s side decks getting re-fastened and plugged
Forward accommodations or Erin’s cave

This is the deck head that Theresa has been working on. It would have saved a lot of time if we could have flipped the boat over.

We are pealing back the years on Merva. Every layer of paint on the interior represents a lifetime. If only the paint could talk. Stripping paint has become the bulk of the work.
The decks are getting new plugs, seams and fasteners. The trim is going back on and the bronze is getting polished. The engine is on it’s way, the electrical is getting planned and Donell is hanging out at the bronze foundry. You could say we are in the thick of it now. I’m starting to imagine her on the water. She is going to look fabulous.
