Re: Repairing , Modifying & Painting the Deck of Windsong

I'll have to note the products you used when I find myself in port with nothing else to do. I'm looking forward to that. Thanx you for taking the time to share your great labor with us. Greatly appreciated. It's nice to see a shiny restored old girl as opposed to the many "new age" yachts that look like bars of soap in the water...
