Nicolas’ week was filled with planking. On the Lyman, he completed dry-fit of two planks and they’re ready to be glued with 5200.
On the International-12, Nicolas dry-fit the second to last boards and they are ready to be permanently installed.
Shane came in on Saturday to apply the final coat to the ceiling boards of the Continental. This ensured no dust from other people working would get into the varnish. Jack spent some time this week continuing to sand the sides.
Shane applied the third and final coat of paint to the hull of the Piglet and painted a fresh waterline. He also cleaned, brushed, and buffed the metal parts including the prop shaft and tiller arm.
For the Pelican, Shane wired the interior lighting, sanded the primer on the deck, and varnished the throttle housing. He installed the electronics panel for courtesy lighting and navigation lighting and wired the negative return. He applied another coat of paint to the deck, likely the second to last. He then sanded and painted the port side hull.
Jack finished painting the previously green Budsin blue and did a beautiful job painting a fresh waterline and custom arrows on the sides.
Shane, Gary, and I installed the centerboard for the Celebrity and got it on the trailer. It’s ready for rigging!
We got in a new boat from our waiting list, a 1955 18’ Continental requiring a full restoration. We’ve taken some before photos to begin the process. Jack started removing the gear, cleaning and prepping, removing the engine, and cataloging parts and pieces so we can get it ready to roll.
