Within the limitations of our shop, (no varnish booth) we are fussy about finish quality. The bottom of the sea flea was a good example. Three coats of primer then sanded out flat, some fairing filler in a few spots, sand out again and two more coats of primer. Two coats of green marine paint, sand out again and two more coats to get a pretty good result.

The TNT bottom eventually came out well and now we are getting on with the topsides. Scott is countersinking and plugging the screws holding the coamings in place, next day or so should be stain and varnish on these parts.

Oh yes the July Shore Leave Night is coming up I think on the 31st. Give us a heads up if you are thinking of coming for BBQ salmon-on-a-plank courtesy Troy!
Oh yes (again) - thank you for the old outboards that have been trickling in! We are getting up to the inventory needed to run the kids programme. The one big hole still is the 3 HP class of motor - if you have one of these not being used any more please consider dropping it off!
