New boat alert! We will be re-varnishing the top deck.
Another new boat here in the shop! Nicolas is working on removing all the wooden features to begin revarnishing, this will include rubrails, inwales, thwarts, and stern sheets.
All the frames are in place, we've moved on to the garboard planks and the secondary planks. We've trimmed it, then dry fit, next I'll be scarfing those joints.
Shane has finished multiple coats on the top deck before doing the major sand, he'll put another coat of varnish before the weekend. He sanded off old varnish in the inner hull and started the re-varnishing process. Some of the seats were damaged so he repaired and re-stained, before varnishing. Shane is also getting the vinyl flooring adhered to the floorboards.
Jack finished painting the bottom of the Bristol. He will begin to start repairs on top to get it ready for a sea trial.
'26 Sea Skiff
Jack installed the swim platform and the ladder. He has a few finishing touches, but we'll be able to sea trial it soon!
