seen this on a few boats and think also in dashews cruising encyclopedia...
foredeck is recored and 100% solid, almost fair and ready for paint
, still going to glass on pad to mount the windlass
, and was also thinking about adding a partition across the fore deck
(glass over wood), then drill glass holes in the toe rail foward of the partition so the messy anchor water
drains there and not all down the deck
keeps deck clean
cost is minimal to add
something to trip over on way to bow
addition 15 hours or so of work involved
worth all the work?
