The first thing you want to do is to carefully remove all that old black tape around the outside of the hull. The white decking material in the middle should come along with it, and definetley the black on the foredeck.
Do it slowly and carefully and make sure nothing extra peels away with it (more of the thwarts)
-You will most likely need to un-screw the Jib-Rack. Do this carefully, and store the rack with the screws in a ziplock bag somehwere that you won't lose it.

You probably will have to take a run to the hardware store, and pick up some "goo-gone" spray that lightly where the black tape was, and remove all the old residue from the sticky side of the tape.

Post up some pictures when it's complete and let me know when that part is done, and we'll move-on.
