Week 10

The dynel gets a coat of epoxy primer.

A view from the bow.

Then, two coats of paint. This is a 50/50 mix of Kirby's cream and white.

Rolling the paint aft.

All old thru-hulls are plugged with wood, epoxy, and backing blocks.

Here you can see the three backing blocks for the old thru-hulls.

The teak deck starts to get lain.

A bunch of tricky notches are cut into the planks.

One side is done.

And now complete. The entire center of the sole lifts up for bilge access.

As you can see here.

Bungs are put in

With hull paint on the way, I began by priming the rudder.

At the end of the day SAT, I had some fun cleaning up my bronze hardware in the sand blasting machine.

Now it all looks brand new!
