Finished Pictures

Wow, this varnish takes it’s time but today I could get her outside and wipe her down.  Gave her a good looking over and I’m satisfied. Good looking boat Rob! I’m still going to give her some time before I climb inside to mount the foot pegs but that’s a small job – she’s done.

Now I just need to get her up there….always something eh?

Nice to have some pictures of her outside to send you.

Looks much better tan the last picture of her leaning on the truck.

This won’t last long.

See her smiling?

…Might even be winking at ya!

That’s your spot.

Hmm, I suppose I could have dusted in there.


Finished with the varnish!

Hi Rob,

I know it’s been a while but it’s all been sanding and varnishing – pretty boring stuff. The new varnish I used takes quite a while to cure. From what I can see in the shop she’s done but in a couple of days I should be able to move her out in the sun and get a good look.

Robin and I are going to put some graphics on and I’ll mount the foot pegs, then she’s finished! Going to take two or three weeks for the varnish to cure but if I feel good about moving her before then I’ll take her to the river and get some proper pictures for you.

Seems like a long build but considering the time lost to the weather I’m ok with it. Some things you just have to roll with. I will say there are no issues with your boat, She’s just as strong as she is good looking!

When I took this picture it was pouring outside and I thought about how wet it has been here this summer. She’s ready for some fresh air and sun.

Wish I could put the hatch on for a good picture but she’s still sticky. As soon as I can I’ll get better pictures posted.
