Bottom Paint

Warm and humid Saturday morning. I wrapped the oars with masons twine. Then we laid the boat over and Fiona helped me put a second coat of primer on the bottom of the boat. I gave the sides a light sanding and when the primer was dry I gave it a first coat of green and the sides got their second coat. This afternoon we’ll pick up some extra hardware for the rudder and leeboard.  Tomorrow we’ll give the insides a second coat of paint.
