While She is in the Shop … Doors

A bit more in the nip and tuck department.

It makes sense to try and get as much done as we can while the boat is under Native Brightworks nice big cover. The interior faces of the cabin doors have suffered from exposure to the elements, wear, and time. Might as well go ahead and have them repaired.

Mike Thomas from Thomas Marine Interiors is going to whisk them away to his shop, work his magic, and bring back something shiny and nice. You may remember Mike from the exciting episode titled Restoring Our Teak Decks. The age of Archimedes combined with all the wood on the boat means there are lots of opportunities for Mike.


A leaking window has done a fair amount of damage to the wood around the door handle.
