The tilt trailer was a beast of a job - but finally done....just a couple more adjustments and off to get a motor tomorrow. Just have to finish oiling the interior and adding floorboards.

Thanks - well this winter was good timing with some downtime in December - January that allowed me to make a lot of progress. Then covid helped the on the back end. I was just playing around with a color pattern on the post is mostly for visibility as the beach launch/land spot has a lot of surfers. The post itself carries radio antennae, lights, will hold rod tips, and can be used to support outriggers, and is also traditionally used to hold oars in the front. Oars a safety tool in case someone loses steering or the motor while launching or landing. J

Can’t beat those colors. Nice job.
I’ve been away for a bit. Did you discuss what type of oil you use. I’d sure like to know.

I was going to make my own "boat soup" based on the recommended mix of raw linseed oil and turpentine with a bit of tung oil. But decided to go with Dalys Ship N Shore. Before oiling however, I coated the raw wood with three coats of the Woodlife Classic wood preservative. Sort of a wood poison that resists fungus etc.

I assume that the oiled areas will darken slowly overtime?

I think it depends on the recipe. D-fir definitely darkens to an amber color over time, but the traditional boat soup recipe had pine tar...which would apparently lead to a blackish patina after a few years.
