Lady J, week nine, she's taking on a new look.

A very busy week at the yard. Lady J's hull is pretty much ready for wet in, even if it rains. The stain is done and there's a coat of CPES over it to keep rain from leaching out and streaking it. After she's wet in, we'll apply 12 coats of varnish over it, above the waterline.

Here are a couple of shots:

Bow



Port quarter



Starboard



The boys have been busy with the house. It will be done natural with varnish.

Cockpit



House aft



Forward



We've also been working inside and in the bilge, detailing it out.



Forward



Center



Aft under the cockpit (there's a bit of cleanup and detail there yet to do since Twan got a bit carried away with the paint....



We'll swap out the thru hulls and install new packing before she goes in the water next Friday for an over the weekend soak. We also have to strip the floors and apply the teak and holly ply so there's much yet to do.

Go on.. you know you want to!


Yes, stunning work Charlie - how ever did you get the house timberwork so free of paint?? I'd love to do that on my boat, but am not even game enough to try!

Oh, and don't forget the anodes before you put her back in.

Hartly, it was a combination of heatgun and scraper, steel wool and stain remover followed with sanding, every single centimeter....
