The Celebrity is nearly ready to set sail! Nicolas spent the week installing the hardware, which includes cleaning and buffing each piece, dry fitting, bedding in caulk, and fastening with new screws. He also completed varnishing the deck and prepped the white paint for its final coat. He then treated the centerboard with anti-rust and epoxy.
For the 26’ Sea Skiff, Jack continued building the hatch frame and began fitting the hatch lid and new hinge. He also kept working on fabricating the aluminum windshield molding trim. Shane cut joints at the forward end of the toe rails and adjusted them to fit light housing on deck. He then drilled screw holes in the toe rails, dry fit and made final touches to the bow joint. He drilled a hold for the light fixture in the light housing, and dry fit the housing. He then completed the shaping on the foot of the port side toe rail.
Gary varnished the engine box and various other pieces for the 18’ Sea Skiff. He also helped everyone with their projects and restocked our cabinets to get us through the winter.
On the Continental, Shane sanded and applied the 6th coat of varnish to the ceiling boards.
On the Piglet, Shane sanded and faired the epoxy along the keel and sides and applied more as necessary. He then washed the blush from the epoxy and sanded and applied more epoxy as needed. Today he painted the bottom a beautiful anti-fungal copper.
