After sanding, sanding, sanding,..., the top coat is black on the outside.

I used a polyurethane single component paint.

The good, the bad and the ugly

Today was a beautiful day in Houston. No wind. Ideal condition to dress Kerness with the sails.

Very good looking little boat!

Main sail

So we received the main sail and the jib.
The mast, gaff and boom are finished and rigging could started.
The mast was up outside on the boat and we rigged up the jib as well. It looks very nice...
For the moment, we placed deck clips, where it was seen most practicle, this may change...!
We are learning to splice the ropes, and will do a post on this subject!


So this week end, we went to buy more epoxy and some fiber glass to finish the hull. After turning it up side down and some sanding, we filled in all shines. This week, we will need to sand this clean and smooth and apply the fiber glass straps on the outside shines. After more sanding we will lay the final fiberglass wooven cloth.
