been taking advantage of the good weather to put some paint on Barbara Kay I color sanded the hull from the water line up to the cabin top with 1000 grit and made a deal with the local paint shop to have 2k clear sprayed in his booth. The paint job came out ok still some dirt nubs but it’s a boat and iam ok with it. Also started the paint of the cockpit, after the boat came back started the bright work finishing, all the wood has been sealed with two coats of epoxy sanded with 220 and 4coats of total boat Lust varnish sanded with 220 also after two coats this varnish I a very high fill product and dries quickly so recoating is not a problem to apply as many coats as you want. For now the 4coats is enough to get protection on the wood and finish the boat.
All this work is been inspired by the port Townsend classic wooden boat show to get finished their was a lot to see and many how to classes on of which was the ins and outs of varnishing by a women who been do this for 30years and I learned a lot, my varnish job has a lot of room for improvement.
