Which boat did you buy?

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

here are the pics. of my rainbow 24 and ariel#74

Looking at the original color made me cringe at first. For some reason it is growing on me. I like the idea of keeping the gelcoat as the final finish. I did not like the durability of the paint i used on the hull. I will try painting the boot stripe orange and go for a paint scheme true to the era.

Congratulations!

The bad news is that the boat needs a new core. It is good around the cockpit but I am going to do the whole thing since it seems kind of dumb to have different core material and different resin on the deck. wish me luck. I plan on cutting off the skin today.

Wow, you got two boats?

Why two, were the prices that good?

Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......

Smile getting the decks off is not as easy as i thought.

I cut the port side along the non skid. as soaking wet as the core is, I am still having a very hard time getting the outer skin to release. I think it has had git rot injected in a few places. I only had an hour to mess with it. we will see what happens tonite.
