    Thanks

    This looks to me as this is the same boat . I still have a problem with the layout of the water and fuel tanks , on the deck the mast connection the base wood are rotten can I replace without removing the mast ? Are there a special way to paint a boat ore will a 2K paint be good ?

    Others here will know far more than I about the mast situation, the painting is a little more in my area of knowledge, I can say that in all painting, surface preparation is all important. Keeping that firmly in mind, the internet should have plenty of info about suitable paint systems to use on a steel boat.
