ALL THE OLD WOOD HAD TO BE REMOVED AND RE BUILT. removing HAD TO BE DONE WITHOUT DAMAGING THE EPOXY HULL WHICH ABOARD TO BE IN GOOD CONDITION. the WOOD WAS BALTIC ORIGIN AND PROBABLY ONE OF THE DEAL ONE SPECIES. IT WES NOT TREATED BEFORE CONSTRUCTION OF THE ORIGINAL BOAT, ALTHOUGH THE WORKMANSHIP AND JOINERY WAS EXTREMELY GOOD.
