For many years, we have wanted to get the helm seat "arms" redone in teak - they are currently done in pine (we were told) and they are splitting at the base. The current "arms" came with the boat.
Here in Mexico, there are many "carpenteria" shops - people that are master craftsmen and do many things the "old-fashioned" way. We ran into one such shop in Mezcales - that of "Luis". He has no name on the shop.
