So you may have noticed that our teak in the cockpit looks quite worn. It is 23 years old and has probably been sanded several times.
The captain decided now would be the time to replace it; after all, we have the helm torn out and that doesn't happen very often. So he stripped out all the old teak and ordered custom milled pieces.
We have been fitting them onto the seats, floor, and lazarette hatches. We are duplicating the pattern from before with strips outlining each section, and parallel strips filling in the center.
