next step now was to stain the mahogany cabinsides, which are seen here
as being successfully stripped of the white paint which infested the
wood's grain. The deadline we had set for ourselves was the middle of
June of 1989, the time of the Classic Yacht Association's Rendezvous by
Land, Sea and Air in Port Ludlow, Washington. When this photo was taken,
it had become springtime in Seattle, leaving only a few months to
complete the task at hand.
