    Re: Finish for a paddle shaft/handle

    Todd mentioned wet-sanding the grip areas and I've seen handles with the sheen knocked off with a green Scotchbrite pad that looked "grippy", but I never got a chance to paddle with it. OK...you've...

    Nice Mirror! That paint looks better than mine :) If the varnish is still tight I'd just give it a good scuff and stick on a few more coats. The epoxy I've typically seen is where the seams are...

    Re: Frames, ideas please!

    I guess much of the decision rests on whether you want to sail or want to take on a major restoration.
  11. Re: Help advice needed please! Getting a wooden Mirror dinghy back out on the water

    For the sake of ease of maintenance you may think about painting most of the inside of the Mirror. Leave perhaps the seat tops and daggerboard case trim bright and paint the rest. But the most...

    Re: 1967 Danish Folkeboot restoration

    Hi Erik,
    Since it sounds like you're "drysailing" the boat and she won't have a chance to sit in the water and allow the planks to swell I would be more inclined to use a non-hardening caulk....
