Miss Bettye is a mystery boat. We don't know who built her or when. The hull is plywood and the topsides looked to be interior pine grooved paneling. That has been changed to mahogany planking. I particularly like how the waterline was taped-off many years ago, painted and left that way, tape and all. The bottom needed to be replaced so we just covered the original with 1/4" marine meranti completely bedded in 3M 5200. The hull is way too far gone to stain so we'll paint her Hatteras white. Here are some progress shots. Stay tuned for her debut.
