One Man’s Skiff Renovation; Part I

Seth Vernon, an excellent Wilmington NC guide walks us through part 1 of his Beavertail B2 skiff renovation - stripping the boat of all the current hardware, SeaDek, sanding the non-skid off and prepping the deck and cockpit for AwlGrip paint and new non-skid.  We’ll check back in next week and see what he’s up too in part II, but in the meantime here’s a few images from part I.
