Today I finally bit the bullet and started the internal deconstruction of Perception. All went well other than 1 x broken hammer. The more I uncovered the more excited I became seeing the steel below. A couple of rust-touched spots but all in all looking good so far. We have a plan to fully gut the interior, clean the hull down to raw steel. Acid etch, prime and epoxy. Then rebuild, re-wire and re-plumb and all the fun and games that involves. Here are some pics of the progress.
