Thanks all, I can see she will be a work in progress for a long while, but it is enjoyable work.

73 Navigator clean up

Well it is still a long work in progress. N Willy, Finally got anchor puller installed, changed out teak handrails for stainless. Teak was through bolted &
thought it might leak. Put a 30year old pulpit on that had been sitting in back yard for 16 years. Had rotted not so nice gunwale patched and painted just hope it holds a couple years. Had galley cushions recovered in sunbrella to make clean ups easier. Lots more to do.

Thanks Pack Mule & Murray, The drum is an EZ Anchor puller it holds 325 ft of 5/8 and 15ft chain. I know it looks a little large but I had 1 a little smaller on my last Parker for 10yrs and loved it. Never had a problem.

Good go'in John,
Progress is golden. Feels good and looks good.
That's a lot of 5/8ths line. I've got 435' of 5/8ths and know it won't fit on my reel. My reel winch is even a bit bigger than yours. Decided it was too big. Now that I'm not in Alaska I probably don't need that much line but my little capstan works OK. But I love the ability to use multiple sizes of line and chain on a single rode. The reel reels it up shackles and all.
Beautiful table and seat upholstery.
Looks like you painted your cap rails black or very dark green. If we ever go back to Alaska ours will be painted too. Under covered moorage here the varnish holds up very well.
Good to see you post again.
