Re: FL14 at 70 degrees North

Thanks everyone! And here are two pictures with the second colour added. Two hours of masking and painting.

Re: FL14 at 70 degrees North

Fightning the weather reports and the rain, again. But the second coat of white has been done on the exterior hull. Quick 400grit sanding between the two coats to remove edges.

Re: FL14 at 70 degrees North

The crack was at the knee, so it was pretty high up. Its being reinforced as we speak!

Re: FL14 at 70 degrees North

She was tested today with our old Yamaha 6A, which proved to be either too heavy or too strong. She flexes the transom too much at full throttle, and we also discovered it had cracked the transom. So itll be reinforced somehow.

Re: FL14 at 70 degrees North

Thanks. Heard good stuff about the skiff. We've been having showers the whole week, thus delaying the paint.

Re: FL14 at 70 degrees North

We filled it and sanded it today and got the first coat on the exterior. One round of 80 grit and another at 240, so we havent killed ourselves sanding. But itll still look good.

Re: FL14 at 70 degrees North

Thanks Orange! For now it'll be a high finish white. Might be detailed with a second color later on.
