The anchor locker project is coming along nicely. I tried my hand at the sawz-all (first time) to cut out the locker bulkhead and it proved to be a great tool for the job. After getting the bulkhead out I ground down the messed up glass in preparation for epoxy. I still need to use the opportunity of this access to clean out the locker, prep, and paint it before I fit on the new bulkhead. Before:

After, now with about a 4 inch hole for a chain pipe.
I also removed the rotten bulkhead that separates the head from the v-berth. After this one, only the main bulkhead remains:

I also started removing what I could from the caprails, and the caprails themselves. I need some assistance to get the stanchions off, so most of the caprail will come off as soon as I get the help.
The chainplates finally came out as well. They were pretty easy to remove, and don't appear to have any major problems (visibly). I intend to replace them, regardless.
