Getting the inside ready for some freshening up. The varnish is fine but it needs a deep clean and then fresh white paint. The boat has a wet bilge but I am keen to change that. My hope is that a ‘bilge-in-a-bilge’ will isolate the water coming in from the stuffing box (normal) and that there is no other ingress. If there is other ingress – I will want to find the source.
Some water seems to be backed up in an area away from the bilge pump. I suspect the chases are clogged – will see.
Looks like a whole lot of newer timber in there.
