Chris Craft Holiday
We've been sanding the sides prepping it for a finish. Jack is sanding the floaty pieces (sponsons),
prepping to paint them.
We got both cheek blocks installed, now we can fit the new frames in place. We installed a total of 12 new, freshly varnished frames in front of the bulkhead. Aft of the bulkhead we're going to use scarf joints at the bottom. We removed the rotted section of the stem and replaced it with laminate pieces and longer additional pieces to support the structure. We added additional bolts in the new areas.
Another successful degreasing! We're going to remove the rest of the hardware and flip this boat so it's all ready for Gary's class!
