Thanks for this thread, Carl. I'm looking at an M that will definitely need this kind of attention. Now, if I can make a few things go in my favor!!!

A thought: While the area is open consider installing access panels to those places you'll need to reach later.

Wow! Great work.

I assume you've checked the rudders and bushings--think you said that--but have you also thought about putting in a rudder angle indicator? You can get by without one, but there have been times . . .

Finally finished my aft deck project. It’s only August 1st!
I would have used original Nautolex if available, but went with Lonseal teak and holly covering.
