Default If the Bill Passes

I just realized that if the bill passes as written, her Majesty will only be able to run one year (I think) as the ol' gal we all love; after that, 10% of her will be changed and 10% each year after that until she is completely changed. The reason I said she'll get one year as the boat we know, I'm assuming they won't have to begin replacing combustible material until after the first operating season. I wonder if the Coast Guard will allow her to keep the beautiful wood paneling in the main cabin or the magnificent wooden grand staircase (as Alan Bates used to complain the Coast Guard didn't allow wooden window sashes in the NATCHEZ' pilothouse).
As I've said before the devils in the details and the bill as written doesn't have many details.
Food for thought.
