People asked me this morning why I was in a foul mood despite the fact that it it GORGEOUS
outside. I think that may be why. I almost abandoned the daily blog this morning but I am going to at least put up a short one.
The cabinets are all back together in the 42. One drawer, which was short to begin with, had to be shortened a bit more since it would not close with the new muffler installed
. That seemed to be the only problem we encountered.
We are finally putting the hardware back on the Joel White after the 6 coats of varnish. The owner asked us to patch his non-skid decks. We should have said no, but did it anyway. The bottom line is you can’t patch an isolated area in a large non-skid pattern
– it will never match. We are now sanding down the whole section and will roll on a new coat with the non-skid mixed in so we have a somewhat uniform look.
I forgot to show the splendid bottom job the guys did on Friday. There was a lot of flaking on this boat and they seemed to conquer that. Sometimes the bottom painters don’t get the credit they deserve
