Thanks for the welcome
Ya, I really like Deltaville. I've lived in Va all my life and had never been there, now it's my new happy place! I bought the boat on the hard
there and have been working on it a year.
I changed the portlights
to tempered glass (not a great idea), pulled out the head
and filled those thru hulls. I changed the other two seacocks. Stripped and refinished the inside wood
. Removed all the stantions and filled and fixed all the freshwater leaks
. Faired the bottom and hull
and painted them. Now I have to replace the rubber rubrail
and standing rigging
, hope to splash this summer.
I bought this boat because it checked all my boxes and I didn't think I'd find another one that did...and I haven't. I was looking for the smallest boat I could imagine my wife and I staying in for a week that took an outboard
in a lazerette.
Deltaville is a great place to explore with many destinations within a day or so away. My long term plans are to take it to Elizabeth City and points south from there..
Thanks again for the welcome, hope to meet some of you along the way.
