During the last week or so we've been refurbishing Zen Again's forepeak. The original vinyl-covered plywood panels were nearly 30 years old. Once upon a time they were cream in colour but had become brown with age. The forepeak cushions were thrown out in Malaysia after their base material started falling apart. Twas time for a tidy up!

|Cleaned, masked and ready to paint|
|Bilge repainted too|
We decided to strip and repaint the aluminium frames and have new canvas covers made. The covers were fabricated by Fremantle Ocean Canvas.
|Pipecosts in place|
We're still thinking about whether to paint the forward bulkhead. Not this year!
