Decided to re coat the stern and Edwardo continued polishing more trim and parts. Keyed the stern with 220. You will see where I was coating it just past the middle. Took me about 10 min not includingthe prep work. Have to move fast with the Awlwood.

Should be my final coat of Awlwood. In just over a week I have a fairly complete varnishing project. Ill be polishing some of this because there is too much airborne debris in this building and you can feel it in the finish. Also what I have in my hand is left over awlwood that solidified in the pot over night. Notice how the product is completely clear. #Awlgrip #AwlwoodMA

— at Crowley’s Yacht Yard Lakeside.

Florida time is over. Now the reality. 7 weeks to launch. Lots to do. Brad Bartkus has a great start on the sanding while I’vebeen gone. . Also started removing tthe canvas backed vinyl from the sides. It was beginning to fail. So she should show very nicely this spring.

Here are some more progress pics. To answer in advance, i have found Cetol to work best on our swim platform. Any teak sealers I’ve used in the past all seem to bleach out quickly. Stain was Chris red mahogany cut with 1:3, 333 thinner Brad Bartkus

New linen wall! So the padded floral fabric wall is still padded and fabric … But the floral is gone!!! There's only plywood behind it all, so maybe someday way in the future it'll be mahogany or something nicer?? They had custom-made piping to match the fabric around the edges. I haven't decided exactly on the piping but I'm thinking maybe even just a nautical type small plain rope?? #boatwithnoname

Pulling up carpet and I actually kind of like the original floor in the master head. What are the odds that I can either sand or clean the varnish drips off of that floor? And someone cut it back at the door so Albert I’m going to need a pretty little wooden transition piece. #boatwithnoname
