I got a great deal on some spanish cedar so I began doing the rails along the deck. Definitely happy with the results.
Also mounted one of the antique brass clears that I found online. It turned out worth the little extra in price, I think.
She certainly has a long way to go, but over the past week I have flipped it right-side-up and began accomplishing some of the smaller tasks to help me get prepared mentally for the week of sanding ahead of me.
Finally put down the first coat of pettit easypoxy. It looks really rough but it’s because I went outside later and found it covered in tree debris. I’m really digging this teal blue
Woke up early enough this morning to finish sanding and get my first coat of primer on. 24oz. of Awlgrip 545 went on really nicely and was just enough to give an even cover.
Don’t let that his could eat mine subtract from the fact that mine was a very impressive catch.
I bought a mast and boom off a Lark for my OK Dinghy and the guy gave me the sail and all of this for free. He just wanted to get rid of everything. And yes, that is all Harken and Ronstan blocks, including a Harken ratchet… I almost felt guilty handing him $175… almost.

I cannot stop listening to this.
Another crazy saturday night… monkeys fist & single rope braid!
I am enjoying this too much.
Almost done! Went over to my friend’s metal fabrication shop today and we soldered up a copper edge and tacked it in to protect the rudder from getting too banged up when it gets in shallow waters.
I am just getting too excited to not keep posting photos.
