I'm back!

I took a few months off on the Cates project but I'm back now.  I think I'll sail this boat August 5 in Chestertown.
I thought I finished this project months ago but making the decision to just replace the decks was probably not the best idea.  While mostly sound, the bottom has developed separations in the lamination of the plywood.   50 year old glue just isn't quite up for the task.  I fiberglassed the bottom keel section back together and repaired the major cracks but I can see this is just going to be a continuing maintenance task.  Maby the next guy that gets this boat can tackle the bottom.
