Re: Interior Plywood

If it's original, the paneling is teak. Benjamin Moore "Advance" Navajo White, or Atrium White if you want to go even brighter.

Re: for the woodies: paying seams

The cotton is there to give rigidity to the hull by keeping the planks from working as the hull flexes underway. When the boat goes back it the water, the planks swell and the cotton crushes into the edges of the planks making everything tight. And yes, the seam compound is there to protect and reta...

Re: Flybridge teak replacement

Parry, I've seen three GB 36' with the plates secured, two where the headliners were removed.
