I love the look of bright work. I actually like working with wood finishes, I've been finishing a residential door, and a cedar sunroom all week and really do enjoy the work (especially since it's all new work).
On the boat the only wood on the exterior is the bowsprit
, and the tiller. The bowsprits got 5 layers of epoxy paint
and the tiller has got 8 coats of epoxy
on it. I'm not sure I want any more than that. Of course I am turning the interior
into a wooden jewelry box.
Your boat must look outstanding, I'd still love to see it sometime.
