Some progress, after interior paint. Rails are done, thwarts in. next is hang seats, and hull and deck paint. It will get kevlar skid plates, and an engine and its on the water.
Good bye blue!
Looking better, outside is next
Few more coats of varnish for the ash
Damn baby blue is ugly.
1st of 3 coats. Epifanes produces a nice, hard enamel finish.
Time for kevlar skid plates
All 3 keels plus stem and stern
Hard beach landings and floating over rocks and shoals arent kind to unprotected gel coat
Broad stern cover
Black pigment in the skids will blend them in with the black hull paint
Filling in the felt as it starves while epoxy is drawn down
One more coat of black and the yellow disappears
Almost all cured.
Final coat goes on after tape removed to fill felt and seal edges
Paint job next, hang seats and go fishing
