Inside work

Now that the major pieces were together (hull, keel, mast, and rudder) it was time to focus on the inside of the boat. We knew the boat had been previously repaired on the starboard side hull (we think it may have fallen off its stands at one point in its life, but we’re not certain). The previous owner was in the middle of rebuilding the boat when he passed away from cancer.

Scouring Google images of what the inside of a Beneteau First 42 *could* look like, we started piecing back together the cabin soul, the charging desk, and the settees.
