is a beautiful 35' bass style boat originally built by Vinnie Cavanaugh.
This boat came to us in remarkably good shape, save for its traditionally
laid teak decks. The teak had worn over the years, exposing the heads
of the bronze ring nail fasteners. These fasteners proved difficult to
remove and the deck framing, especially around the engine hatches, was
loose and sagging.
decision was made to replace the decks and attend to repairs in the bilge
areas that would be exposed during the project. Fortunately, structural
repairs below the decks were minor and we focused on updating the fuel
system and associated plumbing.
