It's been several years since my last post here. I'm glad to see so many familiar names still on the forum! Since my last visit I've almost completed graduate school, renovated an old house, and gotten married. The one thing that isn't done is finish my Swampscott Dory...
The hull is built but unpainted. The inwales are in, as are some temporary thwarts. The challenge: driving from Michigan to the new home in New Hampshire next Wednesday. Should I paint the hull before I go? I'm concerned about the possibility of rain (with last week's weather and all) and was thinking about ragging on something to seal it up just in case. I've got a gallon of raw linseed oil. The plan is to paint the hull white. This needs to be a quick job, either way.
