Well, well . . . well. After much pain and gnashing of teeth with the primer, I put the first coat of paint on the Mill Creek hull tonight. Not too bad if I say so myself. We’re hoping to get it in the water this weekend, but we’re cutting it REALLY close. Another coat tomorrow and then the final one on Thursday night. Then a coat of varnish on Friday night and if it seems okay on Saturday morning we’ll head out. Otherwise, I’ll put on the remaining two coats of varnish on Saturday and Sunday and head out the following weekend. I can add additional coats at any time. It doesn’t do anything for the waterproofing of the craft, but does help protect the epoxy from the sun’s UV rays.

    it’s blue. i mean, really blue. i think when you said blue i wasn’t thinking that shade of blue. but it looks good, and i think that you should build me one since i don’t know if Norb will ever get around to it.

    (but make mine maybe…red. yeah. i like red, and nice crayola brick red will do just fine, hee hee 🙂
