Installed the rubrails yesterday, and the through-hulls that the fenders will hang from.

Pilothouse Paint

Filed under: Building - Painting — tomlarkin @ 11:07 pm

Kirby Yellow Gloss paint. I’ll flatten the top coat a little.

Port stern view 
Two more coats of this on the outside and two more coats on the inside, and I’ll be able to mount the windows!

Here’s my original color layout from last January. I may install the rubrail today while waiting for the paint to dry.

I wish I could see the boat from this perspective, but the tent is too narrow.
