Here's the weekend progress. I stained the decks and coverboards. Weather permitting, I will spray sealer tomorrow. Then I want to get coats of varnish on the decks so that I can do the white caulk.

Jim,
Looking good.

Thanks everybody!

Rich - not really planing the first launch. My guess maybe a year. I still have to install my engine and get a trailer.

Re: Stain used
Interlux Chris Craft Mahogany # 573 (decks and hull)
Sandusky Chris Craft Dark Walnut Filler Stain #9803 (coverboards and king planks)
I took the stain straight from the can. I didn't want to mix colors in case I had to repair anything later. I already had to re-stain the portion of my
planking that was repaired from when my plainer gouged it.

The nasty part at the tip of the bow is where the fairleader will go.  It will cover it up completely.

Wow, That is looking really good. What are you using for the caulk lines SikaFlex? or Epoxy?

Thanks everybody!
Will, in answer to your question. "What are you using for the caulk lines SikaFlex? or Epoxy?"

I did a lot of research on this one. I didn't like the 3m 4200 that I used on my strut etc. because it was messy and didn't allow me much working time.
In my research, I found that many people that restore classic boats use Boatlife Life Caulk (polysulfide sealant). It's supposed to be easy to use, easy cleanup, slow cure, sand-able, and is paint-able (important to me as I will varnish over it.). They all say stay away from anything that has silicone in it.
I ordered mine at go2 marine for $18.67 for a 10.2 cartridge.

After I apply the caulk I will apply varnish, and then restripe with white bootstripe paint over the varnish with a striping machine.

I made some practice deck pieces from left over deck planking scraps glued to scrap plywood. Going to play around with them before I attempt the real decks.

The weekend report:
The weather was 70 degrees with no wind, perfect for spraying my 2nd coat of varnish. Managed to get my decals on, and a coat of varnish over them. I also rubbed out the varnish on my ceiling boards going from 320 grit all the way up to 2000 grit, and then hit with polishing compounds with a buffer. (good practice for the rest of the boat). I was thinking about the glen l site where it says "you can build a boat" I am thinking that they could add "if you know how to sand, then you can build a boat" :lol:
I'm really looking forward to caulking the seams next week end.
Jim
