Today I faired the epoxy fairing compound. Sanding the hull smooth and fair. Then gave her a fresh coat of Pettit EZPoxy Jade Green topside paint.
Today I started the yearly maintenance on our local Traditional Small Craft Association work skiff. Last year we completely repaired and rebuilt her. She is a wonderful boat for our local TSCA. For her to remain as of service, it’s imperative for the next three years to diligently maintain her.
Today the mast, boom and sprit pole are complete and ready for the sail.

These are the final photos from my shop of this Salt Bay Skiff. There may be more in the future but they will be outdoors.

Today a couple of friends came over to help turn her upright. Then I varnished her transom. Next week I hope to be finished with her daggerboard, rudder, mast, boom and sprit.
