Bought some pvc conduit and started visualizing what the cockpit cover might be like. The cockpit is not self-bailing, so needs to be covered, at least during wet weather. Until then, the boat is fully covered with a tarp.
Thanks to Paul, I have a place to reconnoiter and consider my options.
The plan at this time is to:
1. Clean the hull
2. Make the cockpit cover (it could be called a tonneau)
3. Do some caulking, or something, on the hull-deck joints, and
4. Overhaul the engine.
Then it's off to the paint shop for a proper bottom painting, and then straight into the water.
