Gary was on the road doing marine surveys. Here a marine mechanic is running diagnostics. Usually when Gary does a winter survey, it snows. Not this time.
Our gold leaf guy, Mike Gregson applies 22k gold vinyl to the 1955 Continental and the Budsin electric boat.
A lot of white goop being slung around the shop this week. Shane and Gary are working on installing the white caulk lines on the deck of Carolina Boat and the Ski Boat.
Lots of varnish being applied as well. Multiple coats on the Custom Camp Cruiser, both gloss and matte finish. Very detailed masking between coats.
Good progress on the Penn Yan. Mostly ready, just lots of little details.
The bottom of the U-18 is on and cured, now we are fairing and sanding, lots of sanding. Here, Jack is installing new sections of the chine planks and outer chine. The forward sections were good enough to reuse, the aft sections required replacement.....And oh yeah, the engine works!
