Get ready for a long one! See, I really like woodwork and my dad taught me when I was a kid how to work with it. Does that make me an expert, well nope, just an avid DIY’er with a general idea how to put wood together. We also are fortunate enough to have lived on a Tashiba 40 sailboat for the last 20 years. These are amazing boats with an interior that has over 2,000 hours of labor in it, and it shows. The joinery is remarkable and we both enjoy coming back home and opening the companionway.
