One of the benefits of working on a "good old boat" is the quality of the wood and general fittings on-board. Spend some time on a new production boat and you will realize that many of the wood panels under bunks, headliners, shelves etc. are designed to the minimum spec.. 1/2" and above marine ply must have been plentiful in the Whitby yard.
I have removed the old chart storage and will be using it as an instrument panel. One of the Saloon chairs will find a new life as the chart chair with the addition of an Attwood Swivl-Eze Adjustable Seat Pedestal.
