V10 mostly finished (photo)

Post by Skipper Ed » Thu Feb 22, 2007 7:32 pm

Well guys, thanks again. Couldna done it without you and this forum.

It's my first boat and I'm doggone happy with the result. Since it's February and I live in NY, it'll be a while before I'll find out how it rows and sails. But that will give me time to build the daggerboard, rudder, mast partner, and sailing rig!

But the basic boat is finished!

I'll post a photo in the gallery.

Thanks again to all on the forum and to the tutorials!

It would kill me to chop up that pretty boat to install the daggerboard trunk. I hope you are ready for that emotional challange. You boat looks fantastic.

The daggerboard trunk is already in. I just haven't made the actual daggerboard yet!

I'm using System Three... blending their blue green and white. If you like the color when I post a picture (one of these days), I'll be happy to give you the ratio, which I will hope to be very simple. One of my first test trials will be 1 part blue, 1 part green, 1 or two parts white. If it looks good, sound simple enough to do your own blend? 8)
