Valiant 40 Finish . . .

We splashed the Valiant today and I gotta say, she looks better outside then she did in the shop.





The crew



Myself



Getting rigged



Aft



Varnish aft



Varnish forward



We still have a bit of cleanup to do and a couple of coats of varnish yet but she's outta my shop. Now I need another boat to do.
