The man. the myth, the legend. That's right, Gary Lowell is back in town! We missed him while he was away but loved getting to hear all the fun he had visiting family, teaching classes & working on boats up in Maine. While Gary settles down please continue to email Lowellboatsoffice@gmail.com to our office manager Destini with any questions, comments, billing & invoicing concerts, & or to schedule a shop visit.
Carolina Flats Skiff
Well look who's working on this boat! The new mahogany transom has been installed and was sanded, stained & a sealer coat of varnish has been applied. He also primed the bottom of the boat along with the skegs. it looks great. Gary is working on the water line and installing new skegs to help the steering.
Jack has reinstalled the starboard side panels and outer chine planks with 5200 marine adhesive. He has also installed the new transom planks & made additional repairs on the port side, side planks. He has filled holes in backing battens in preparation for reinstalling the side planks on the port side.
Shane has continued to apply varnish to the exterior and ceiling board panels.
Recognize this boat? That's because we flipped it. The crew flipped the Whirlwind over yesterday and even got a fun time lapse of it. Check out our facebook to see it flip. After, Shane started prepping the wooden sides by sanding it for varnish.
Shane has applied another coat of top side paint onto the deck and has been building varnish on the miscellaneous wooden parts.
Shane has removed all the floor panels, ceiling boards, seats, deck hardware, windshield, fuel tank, and the damaged transom plank to further investigate & determine replacements needed. He also ran a leak test.
