Major refit of a 18ft dory fishing boat

A small repair caused by a forklift fork while in another yard, not a boatyard 

Grinding back the inside of the repair to get ready to re-gelcoat and and build up the matting back to the original spec

The engine in need of a good overhauling before getting it up and running up again before it goes back to its owner, so he can go fishing 

A bit of TLC needed in the cockpit and the cabin 

A rebuilding of the engine box is also needed as it as seen better days 

Starting to do the gelcoat repair by fitting a piece of waxed Formica on the outside and gelcoat the inside of the Formica before putting matting over the gelcoat back up to the original specification.
