Non-Skid Applications

Just received the last of the deck pictures today from Brad.  The crew in Florida is working hard. The final non-skid application has gone on and the deck is officially done! Oh Happy Day.

After years of looking at the old faired fiberglass it is nice to finally see it completed.  That does not mean that the boat is completed of course.  The cockpit needs to be painted and the interior work will continue this fall when the weather cools down. Working on the inside your boat in Florida during the summer would literally fry your brain.  

Quoting an old boatyard friend of ours "Deno", "forward progress has been made".  That was Deno's motto.  As long as your making progress who cares.  It is at the point where more of the boat is done now than needs to be done.  A good feeling.

Final Paint

Work continues on Wildthing.  It has been a nice spring in Florida, the cooler temps and dryer weather have allowed work to progress on the paint. Below are some new pictures of the final Awlgrip paint that has been applied to the caprail and bullworks.  Nice work guys, she really shines now.
