Lady J week 14, I think....

Just a quick update. We've started scarphing in mast sections prior to assembly. Here we are matching the curves.



Now we're checking the joint lines.



A ton of work to get dissimilar pieces to match up before we make the round-over cut. We have three spray coats on her since the first blocking now and she's starting to shine. Only two more to go before the final blocking to remove any grain dips and level the surface and then two to three more spray coats.

Here's a couple showing the sides of the hull without flash.

Portside forward



Portside aft



Starboard forward



Starboard aft



Two photos of the same spot aft both with and without flash.



and



A little reflection test on the aft toe/transom rail.



These may be the least shots from this old building since we are moving to a newer, larger building this next week.

Charlie -

I have a question regarding the spraying of finish vs. hand application. I know that it's difficult to keep a wet edge when hand applying finish, especially in warm weather. Given your location, I would think that's not an issue. Do you spray because it reduces (but not eliminates) the potential for drips and sags? I know that it's much faster to spray so that may be a consideration too?

The finish is looking really great and it will be amazing to see the final product. I'm learning some nice details watching the progress; I wish that I was there to see the progression live. Keep up the great work.

I used the brush application for high build purposes. Even with Penetrol, you still have some minute brush marks in varnish. Not so with spraying.

Got it. I've had the same experience even using Penetrol. Love that stuff and use it in my furniture building from time to time. Most of my finishes are hand applied because of the small area. Depending on the circumstance, I may final sand at 220 and then apply a final coat, rubbing out with rottenstone, and then applying a final coat of furniture wax.

Looking forward to your next installment.
