She's absolutely beautiful. I'm looking forward to see her in the water. I'm curious though, How badly the UV will damage her finish. Especially if shes in a dock with one side always to the sun. I used to know a fellow with a Folkboat who had a canvas drop clothe made up to protect the sunny side. He figured touching up the abrasion marks was simpler than redoing the whole side.

She has a cover that reaches the top of the boot stripe for when she's resting.

Looks great Charlie.

Looked after a couple of Dragons back in the 60's that were bright finished. Hot, sprayed varnish finish. 2 part covers to the waterline. Stem to mast, transom, around backstay, and up to mast, zipped up.
Wife's Christmas present to me is all new canvas covers for teak dorade boxes and handrails I just made. She made them on her Janome 4612 machine, which proved gutsy enough to handle the heavy material. ( Lots of discussion about sewing machines here lately) Hatches next
