Hi Colleen. Very good abstract, but the restoration effort is doomed! The discoloration that I see around the nailheads is probably the dreaded "nail sickness" This is caused by using iron nails on pitchpine planking. It is characterised by this discoloration where the affected wood goes fibrous and spongy rather akin to rot, but not caused by fungus.
The resin from the pitchpine, or similar wood, reacts to the iron nails, and the reaction products cause it. It is usually seen on boats of +- 40 years or older. One way of reducing the effect is to use nails of one casting, ie one pot of metal which would have the same chemical composition, reducing the electrolytic reaction of near adjacent nails which have a slight difference in formulation. Unfortunately this is of use only when the boat is made.
ps the prawns look yummy!!
