  1. Love that you posted all your boat projects! Thanks for the tips!

  2. Question: did you have qualms in painting over teak on the interior of your boat? I like the teak but it's very dated and causes the living space of our 1984 motor yacht to be dark/cave-like. What are your thoughts? Thanks Megan

    1. I own Puff - L33 #56. The dark bulkheads were formica 'picturewood', not teak. I painted them white, & varnished the (real) teak trim. Cabin much brighter.
