I finally got to put photos I took in April last year, in an Imagestation album. Does it work?


Might get this February's photos in around December this year.

I was gonna guess some sort of English cutter... Neat project! Strip planked? Sale on red paint? ;)

(So... Just WHAT'S holding her up, anyway? Can't be just those 2 x 2s(?) in the picture?)

Yes, I can do imagestation. Some satisfaction. I will scan some more recent pictures, given opportunity.

She is a Golant Gaffer, a 6 metre gaff cutter, and much advanced from that photo which was taken just after we turned her over last year. So yes, she was balanced on those 2 x 2's, but now she has a cradle. The space in the garage is tight, there was no room to turn her over onto a cradle, so I did it in 2 stages. She is strip planked, and if that paint was on sale then I wish it had been cheaper. Its actually a port wine colour, and darker than it looks here. We now have the deck and cabin on, gunwales and toerails installed, and I am finishing off the companionway and hatch and putting in blocks for the fittings. This weekend we should be putting some more paint on - not all red.

Next thing, find a trailer and drag her out of the shed. It will be a fine thing to see her from a little distance for the first time.

Wow! That must have been pretty scary rolling her over in there! You must be part engineer.... Never mind all the "jabs" at your paint job... You should have seen the looks I got when I slathered the whole hull with the first coat of red lead primer. Amazing how it all "comes together" when you get the final paint "scheme" put down. What WILL she look like when done? (Color wise, that is?)
