Small Jobs take a lot of time and somtimes you can not see the wood for the trees.

As often the case when doing jobs on boats, there are times when you do a number of small jobs that in themselves do not amount to very much. Do make a great deal of difference in the end result.

I had one of those days today where I did a number of small jobs on a number of different boat projects. The jobs are time consuming in that they are difficult little jobs and need a lot of patience to get right and look the part.

Also getting the correct finish on varnish work need the correct environment and patience to get the finish you are looking to get on the final coat.

Another fun job is making up new trims where the old ones are either broken or in some cases missing and having to make them up with just little bits of the old trims where possible.

In the case of the Princess 25 refit the owners wishes to have a white and blue interior with English oak trims throughout. This means having to get rid of all the old trims and replace with oak, lots of bench work to do to get all these new trims made and varnished up the fittied to the new white Formicaed bulkheads.

While this is all going on there are a number of other jobs to do on other clients boats.
