Good day on the paint work on the Enterprise restoration project.

Yesterday was a good day with the jobs on the boat. The second coat of thinned varnish was put on the inside of the hull and centreboard case after rubbing the whole area down to get rid of any dust that had got its way on to the varnished surface. It was all cleaned down and the second coat was applied and is starting to build up layers on the new wood panels and on the existing old parts. so the inside is now starting to take shape and looking better after every coat.

The same can be said of the outside of the boat as the layers of undercoat start to build up on the surface of of hull. It is now got its third coat of undercoat and it just needs a final coat of undercoat before starting to put the first of the white gloss coats on.

So all in all a good day on the Enterprise restoration so just a few more days on the hull before being able to turn the boat over and to start to do the deck and get the deck varnished and the rubbing skates fitted and the deck hardware sorted and fitted.
