Thanks to volunteers and supporters, work on the Grand Banks 42 “Challenged America” is progressing nicely
Today, Nielsen Beaumont Marine put “Challenged America”. the Grand Banks 42 they donated to Challenged America back in the water. The hull has a shiny new white finish and looks fantastic. The work will now start on the engines and the cabin. In addition, the upper hull paint job will continue and the transom will receive another 6 to 8 coats of varnish (volunteers welcome)
Challenged America’s restoration is coming along, as of 02/2012, the forward cabin and pilot house have been cleaned and Challenged America is getting ready to receive her new aft deck modified to allow access to people with disability.
The aft deck will be totally open and protected from the sun and allow disabled access to the pilot house.
Dave is working on getting the wood and volunteers are needed to do some more sanding and painting.
