Canvas for the Chestnut

Repairs are done, new canvas going on to be filled and painted in the spring, along with a new keel and final coats of varnish on the inside

Long a fan of the upside down method, tall sawhorses make it a more comfortable process

New roll of #12, enough for the next 4 boats

Stretching tight

The immovable object, fine while the weather is nice!

Nice and tight, fastened at the rails 

Almost done

Preservative, a necessary steop

Zinc concentration has been reduced due government regulation, from 8% to 2% but strong smell remains

Done and drying, waiting to be filled
