Today the mast, boom and sprit pole are complete and ready for the sail.
Yesterday a couple guys from our local Traditional Small Craft Association came by and took the boat out of my shop. Jody wanted to see the finished product so today we drove up the road to take a look. She took this picture of yours truly and the skiff of course. This morning I took…
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 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.
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.
Today the 3rd and final coat of Jade Green was applied.
Today I sanded the hull with 220 grit and applied the second coat of Jade Green EZPoxy. Tomorrow I’ll sand and apply a third, then apply a coat of varnish to her transom.
This morning I faired the hull and applied the first coat of EZPoxy Jade Green top coat. At least 2 more coats to go.
Today I faired the hull and added a coat of West 410 fairing compound to her fiberglassed areas. Tomorrow I’ll fair her smooth and begin to paint.
This morning I prepped the hull for fiberglassing and then layered the glasses down with epoxy and secured the keel shoe.
