Hi George,
Because of the glare of bright white that is why I did paint the cockpit and benches and the bulkhead in the off white colour creme. Being colour blind is a handicap in painting anyway, but I can see at least some difference between 2 paints when they are next to each other. The top of the hatch and the deck is still bright white and until splashing time I leave it that way except that I have to put another topcoat on because I have some dings and scrapes from working with deck fittings. Right now I am making the 3rd version of seat straps to lean against while sitting on the cockpit benches. Number 1 I built from black bag straps and when it was finished I did not like the black straps on the boat. Number 2 I built from leftover white lashing straps just to find out it was not wide enough and that is why I ordered 2 inch wide red strap material and fitting carabiners. That is definitely the last version for the cockpit straps not to become a stickler for details.
Greetings from Karl

If you're going to put another coat on, I'm with das boot and recommend you continue, or switch as the case may be, to off-white.

Hi,
I am still pottering around with my brackets for electric outboard motor and the ladder for the transom at the port side and it would not be me to be distracted by the Spring cleaning of the garage and so I tackled the transport of the centreboard of its hibernating place to the boat shed to hang it into the boat soon. Ever since my slipped disc in my back prohibits me to carry any heavier weights than 7 KG ( 15 1/2 pounds ) I got my manual crane out to hopefully get it done within 2 hours before lunch.

Here is the centreboard on its way with a bored helper lying in the background.

and here it is gone because the real helper, my soon to become son in law came around and just picked the 63 KG ( 138 pounds ) centreboard up of the crane and put it down in the boat shed for me. Job finished in under a minute.

Image

I wish everything would go as fast on my build.

Hi,
The centreboard got its last coat of paint before it is hung into its case. Painting was necessary because it got quite some bashing over the last 3 years from the exhaust of my car which was parked in front of it in the garage.

At last another thing finalized before splashing.
