Upside Down again

Thanks to Andy & Caroline for helping me to flip the boat and to Andy and Nick for helping me to pop it up on a stand.

The last sheet of fibre glass is done. Now I'm sanding and painting.

The mast has it's first coat of Varnish, and before I flipped the boat I added various fitting like the eyes for the main sheet traveller, and the jib sheet leads.

There's 3 liters of EasyFair fairing compound on the way, I had not realised how much the glass cloth would "print" through the epoxy, and mixing up your own fairing compound is dusty, messy and expensive.

The todo list is getting very short these days.

In truth, It could go in the water without being painted, but I've waited this long.
