Same deal on the TNT - although we thought we were ready to paint before discovering this stuff. It has allowed us to raise the bar on quality of finish without sanding through the bottom planking! It will also allow us to improve the shape of the bottom which had some concave sections in the running surface.

Bernie was in this week getting the epoxy all over the boat, deck, bottom and all. The areas to be varnished bright have been stained and epoxy coated as well. Next step is the inner panels, figuring out the steering, a keel or fin to keep it going straight and some more finer details.

It is time to get the summer boats ready for the water so the Gas-Hopper will have to go into storage to make space for doing this. We got the trailer mostly back together except for the electrics and loaded the boat up. Gas-Hopper is away and Dileas is in the shop.

Don't forget this Thursday, May 29 at 7 PM, is our monthly Shore Leave Night. Weather permitting we will have another BBQ and bonfire on the lawn behind the boatshop. Still only $10 a head for food and beer! RSVP! 905 873-0141
