New Too

Greetings from Door County WI. I recently purchased a 1975 Fales Navigator. I am in the process of a total restoration. My plan is to run a sailing charter business here in WI and in a few years do the Great Loop.
So far the bottom is sandblasted, pilot house top removed, all windows removed and deck crazing grinded down. Hope to start mudding next week. Barrier coat, bottom paint to follow. Meanwhile, can anyone direct me to a source for replacement windows?

Thanks,
Capt. KeelGood

In the deep end but not over my head(yet).

Now that boat defines a 'trawler'. Bebe would approve.

Restoration

I've found a semi load of various size teak. $23/board ft. Is this a good price?
