Jim,
your boat is looking great!

What stain color is your coverboard?

It looks fantastic against the other deck and side color.

Thanks Steve!
The stain is Sandusky Dark Walnut Filler Stain. You can get it at Classic Boat Connection. I found out that Sandusky manufactured the stains used on many of the original Chris Craft boats.

What might just be the final varnish coat. Still need to buff out. Seems like I have been sanding and varnishing FOREVER!

Looking real nice Jim. I wish the weather were cooler here like it is in California as I build outdoors most times also. I know it gets hot in Sac area( I used to live south of there), but at least some days are more tolerable. Here, it's like living in an oven for 5 months. :lol: :lol:

Hey Carl what you mean cooler in Calif? It was 104 Saturday.
One advantage, our varnish drys quickly. :lol:

Yeah I remember those days there. We lived just south of Turlock / Modesto and the summers were brutal. It was quite an adjustment when I moved from the Bay Area in 93 to the Central Valley there. But at least my house there had AC. The one in the Bay Area did not.

Hi Jim. Often you share photo's of original wood boats with us. They are great! Thanks much for that! By any chance, do you have a place on line with all of your boat photo's that you would share with us? Don't see many of these boats in Kentucky and your photo's are taken with the eye of a builder.
We plan to attend some of the boat shows around the country in the future but not any time soon. Looking forward to The Gathering to see the GlenL versions also.
Thanks

BTW, You are going to need to wear blinders and glare paint when you are on the water in your boat! :D Beautiful!

Thanks Jim,
Send me a PM with your address and I will mail you a CD with lots of pictures from the Lake Tahoe Concours D' Elegance boat shows. I have been going every year to take pictures for reference.

Here's what happened over the weekend.
Got my cutwater and transom bands from Cutwaters by Mike. He did a perfect job, and they were a perfect fit. He said I should put beeswax between them and the varnish so I did. I put the rub rails on the spray rails. If you look carefully you can see the black wood molding installed under the rub rails. That is to protect them, and the varnish because the rub rails are hollow. I also installed the transom drain, and the exhaust tips. Now that I have the cutwater and fairleader installed, I can install the side rub rails next weekend. Once the decks are buffed out, I will install the rest of my deck hardware.

Suppose to get my new trailer this Friday!

The cutwater and matching fairleader. The fairleader has a lip that finishes off the top of the cutwater. The rub rails meet under the fairleader and against the cutwater.
