Teak looks great and I like the mini-mast. Made my mm out of part of an OB lower unit section.

What is that section called at the top of the topsides ... that's light green on your boat .. Dark green on mine. Is the color GB Beige?

Interlux Grand Banks Beige. Slightly different tint than Petit.

Looks good Bob . That teak is in really good shape .I think the fact that your GB is a woodie it looks even better . I might be wrong but I don't think that the look would be as easy on the eyes with same boat in the fiberglass model. I can't put my finger on it but I've always liked the look of the woodie better .

Thanks Marty!
It's interesting that you say that. We have tied up next to a later model glass 32 and the differences are very subtle but noticeable. We have also cruised a glass 32 and the differences are much more apparent. The woodies are quieter, warmer and just generally feel better. At least we think so!

I can attest to that fact after spending time on my Sister and Brother-in-law's 1967 42' Trojan.
That craft was WAY warmer than ours in the morning.
But, what always gets me is he says, "if I could have afforded fiberglass, I would have gotten fiberglass".
Hmmm...must be all that painting they're doing constantly.

I love wood boats. Worked on them for many years while growing up. Would own a beautiful ol' woodie if I had capital for others to do nearly 100% of the "wood" maintenance. But I do not have that kind of loose capital... so I own a glass boat. There is a trade off for everything... especially in boating.

You should get that plated or at least ceramic clear coated.

Unless of course you like the green patina.

Me too, did you cast that yourself? I took the bronze casting class last year from CWB. I still need to make my furnace.

Hey Dave is that a lost wax process ? I like me some bronze also . I bought some old massive bronze cleats from our own FF . My last machinist job was making custom knees and hips . We used the lost wax for sst castings.

I did not. A friend had them cast in Bellingham and gave us a set.
