Salt Bay Skiff – Rudder and Tiller

Today I built and fit the rudder and tiller. This vessel is now complete. She will be out of my shop this Saturday, so I can loft the sail rig on my floor and mill the mast, boom and sprit.

Salt Bay Skiff – Turning Over

Today I had a friend help me turn her over this morning. I prepped the hull by filling all her screw holes and laying down the first layer of fiberglass around the daggerboard trunk were it meets the bottom of the hull. I then built the daggerboard.

Salt Bay Skiff – Touch-Up and Green Pinstripe

Today I did all the off-white touch up and added the jade green pinstripe to the top edge of her plywood sheer. We just have to wait a couple day for all the paint to dry completely, then turn her over to fiberglass and paint her hull.
