    The thwarts and knees were done with varnish that was well thinned with Turps and it all got soaked up.
    I've got 2 coats on now.

    Looks awesome varnished. You don't have to paint it.

    Today I gave it a light sand to knock the nibs off the thwarts and knees. Third coat of varnish was then applied. No photos sorry.

    Another light sanding was done yesterday then 4th coat.
    I've been using a foam roller to get the build coats on for speed and lack of drips, but the finish isn't that great so the last couple of coats will be done with a brush.
    I had a dig in my paint box as well to see what I have.
    I'm using 2 pot International paint and need to get a 1/2 litre of undercoat to go between the epoxy primer and the Royal blue topcoat.
    There is some scraping, filling and sanding to be done on the outside before that gets used though.

    5th coat done.

    [IMG]20170903_131540 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    I got bored with varnish so I flipped it over and sanded the hull.

    [IMG]20170904_140510 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    I then started fairing the outside for paint.
    No photo of this sorry, I had to dash.

    Fill, sand, fill, sand, fill.
    [IMG]20170913_150044 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Sand and then probably a final bit of fill (and sand) before paint.

    I'm still at the same stage, getting my big boat ready for the racing season became more important.
    It rained for most of the 2 weeks I allowed, so the things on the bottom of the list didn't get done.
    I'm also researching how to make a rope bow pudding as I found it is called. This is needed to protect the big boat from the bow clunking it.
    It seems simple enough, just got to follow the youtube instructions I found.
    I'll document it as well as possible while tangled up in a mountain of rope.

    Your wish has been granted MADOC1.
    I've been through and added all the photo's that I could find. The very early ones seem to have been lost, but I have one more place to look for them.

    I made a floating keyfob as a practice project for the bow pudding.
    youtube is definitely your friend for these things.

    That's very neat, Slacko, even in New Zealand!

    A quiet long Weekend Monday, so I collected together the bits to make the bow pudding.

    [IMG]20171023_134439 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    I put a light line through the twist at the middle of the piece of rope I'm going to use as the Gunwale protector.

    I then cut a series of pieces off some smaller rope that I had for the filling.
    [IMG]20171023_134849 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    I then bound it on using the line I had threaded through the twist.

    The next trick is to wrap the bundle in the nice soft cotton rope. I was a bit worried that it was too big at this stage.
    A simple twist is used to get it started.
    [IMG]20171023_143809 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Then 1/2 hitches are tied setting up the stitch size and tension. The keyring trial told me that it needs to be looser than I imagined.
    [IMG]20171023_144807 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    1/2 done, the end is left on after tucking into the twist to hold it in place.
    [IMG]20171023_153009 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    I'm going to use the ends to tie it in place using some holes drilled in the bow.

    Starting again in the middle with the other half of the line showing the path of the fid through each knot.

    [IMG]20171023_162115 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Finshing the second end showing the tuck under the twist. This shot also shows dropping of stiches as the bundle gets smaller. I've built this with a definite front and back, The bundle was built with a flat back as well.
    [IMG]20171023_164210 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    All done ready to go on. Not up to the standard of stuff you see online, but a good first attempt and fine for a boat that will be used.

    To protect the hull I've glued a batten to both sides of the hull to screw some brass rubbing strip onto for paint protection when on the hard.
    I've filleted and sanded these and filled the little pinholes in the filler, so hopefully I'll get some paint on next week.
    I'm going to bring it home to paint as there is no airflow in the boatshed.
    Not a good combination with Isocyanic paint!!
    This will be the 3rd shed I've used during the build.

    That is cool. Can't wait to see it installed. And I've got to try something like this for myself, some fenders maybe.

    I sanded the filling that I did for pinholes in the filler, dusted off then masked the gunwale and transoms.
    First coat of 2 pot epoxy primer on.
    [IMG]20171030_133546 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    I'll roll another coat of primer on, then give it a light sand to see what it's going to come out like.

    I got one coat of International perfection undercoat on this morning.
    It is semigloss so really shows the bits that need more work ideally.
    It's a long way from perfect, but I'm happy with how it has turned out so far.

    I've got 2 topcoats of Royal Blue on now.
    I'm not sure yet whether it needs a 3rd coat or not yet. I have the paint left over.
    Once it is dry, I'll see if there are still any spots that the colour is a bit thin.

    Yesterday I gave it a quick sand with 180 grit RO sander and put a 3rd coat of topcoat on. The colour is deeper blue with no hints of holidays in the colour.
    I also changed from using a foam roller to a very short nap roller and the surface finish improved markedly.
    I'd used them recently for painting internal doors in the house and the finish came out much smoother with no tipping off at all.

    Back up the right way with 2 of the 3 brass strips attached underneath. I'm waiting for the 3rd piece to arrive at suppliers.

    On the home stretch now.
    I got the bow pudding and rope rubbing band attached today.

    [IMG]20171111_161129 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]
    I also spliced a painter to the eye at the front.

    I epoxy glued the rope into the groove I routed into the gunwale applying the glue with a big syringe, and taping to hold in place until it sets.

    I finished the transom ends of the rope rubbing strip today, and attached them with silicon bronze flat head ring nails.

    [IMG]20171112_113245 by Craig Slack, on Flickr[/IMG]

    I also got the last piece of brass strip attached to the bottom.
