Thanks for the good finishing advice you guys!
Now it's too cold here to refinish, probably until March, so currently I am replacing the original naugahyde ceiling panels with vinyl, which will really brighten things up.

In January, she's due for a haul-out to install a PSS shaft seal to replace the leaking original. And also the cockpit thru-hulls, which are seeping a bit of water through their wooden spacer blocks. Then hopefully I can attain at least a nearly-dry bilge, and clean and paint that area up, along with organizing some wiring and removing tramp wires.
Question for now: How to clean these teak cockpit grates? Along with an oxalic acid cleaning, they have a good bit of very old varnish in all the nooks and crannies that must be removed. I'm thinking it's an endless, thankless job just applying heat and scraping. Any better ideas??
