Re: 1958 Celeron

Tim is the hull and deck fiberglass? The wood trim and cockpit area looks to be in pretty good shape, maybe a light sanding and then varnish to protect it again.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Your boat is gorgeous. Plan on spending an extra hour at the ramp while everyone ogles over your craftsmanship.

Re: Catalina 22 repairs

The epoxy will protect the wood, but if you are mounting the wood to surfaces where moisture gets trapped like the grooves you mentioned the one part varnish may bubble up. May be better opting with a 2part varnish.

Matt-
Nice to see that the winch mount works well for you. Great when you can fab your own metal parts
