5 coats of Epoxy primer and 4 coats of VC Offshore bottom paint. That was stinky paint. You wouldn't want to do that adjoining a house, unless you are gone!
Now time to paint the bootstripe. I hope its right!
I set the plan indicated level from the inside to the outside with a water level, then made the line with a laser level.

Looking very cool Robert. Have you considered adding the boot stripe at a future date after you get a chance to float her? Just a thought.

Yes, bootstripe is next, you can see the primer just below the bottom paint.

3 coats of varnish and time for a wet sand.
I could also use some advice on turning!

Your frame is on casters. Looks like you may be able to move it and rig off those big roof trusses. Similar to my Tahoe flip.

Robert:

Looks Great!

Going to need more than 3 coats of varnish. I would put on 6 to 7 coats now and 6 to 7 coats just before your finished.

Keep up the great work!

I built a jig to flip mine.

Simple & safe for 2 or 3 guys.
