5th Month Week 19.5

This is being typed from home after a safe drive up Hwy 5 and a great ferry trip from Bellingham to Juneau. There was also some memorable days in Whidbey Island that have nothing to do with the rehab Last full week and a little into the packing week. I got most of the antiskid done on both the deck and the cockpit hatch lids. The Cockpit remains to be painted and antiskidded plus a little antiskid work on the cabin top and the foredeck. I can't do the foredeck until I outline how the winch goes on.

The anti skid is gelcoat thickened with silica and wax added. It is rolled on with a texture roller. It is a pretty aggressive tooth, I will knock it down with a board pushed over it.

So now the closing episode of the first winter. The final buffout and waxing of Sheer's hull paint is done. The results are fantastic and I know I am going to look really good at the helm. Here is a series going around the boat

So that's it for this work season. I have brought some stuff home to build doors for and will post a page on that when they get done. Stay tuned for year two starting in mid Oct.
