We hope you’re having a great start to your weekend. We know we are!! And that is because there is some MAJOR progress about to take place on the build.
It all started two weeks ago, when we had Colby, one of the marina’s mechanics, come spend a day on the build to give us lessons in fairing and painting. Colby has his own boat in the work yard he’s refinishing, and after seeing his painting skills a few months ago, we knew we could use some professional tips from him. (He’s also the one who recommended Blue Dykem dye as a guide coat)
Off camera, we spent the morning fairing out three walls of the master shower (Colby is camera shy) but what we were able to cover is us sanding down the surfaces and then using Colby’s spray gun to apply a coat of our high build primer.
This lesson has been EXTREMELY useful, and now Matt and I feel a lot more confident about quickly attacking other areas of the boat.
One other project is taking our new honeycomb core, and laminate it ourselves to have extra material for building out shelves and other non-structural areas.
Plus, more congratulations from some of our favorite sailing friends!
