One primer coat and 3 finish coats of gloss Awlwood MA and the grain is filled. At this point its like instant gratification. You need to do double the coating with varnish to get to this point if your lucky. Ill probably do another 3 or 4 coats on that and call it good. Now back to the Torpedo at another location. #captainalbert #marianne #chriscraftboats #chriscraftconstellation #northshoremarina

Freshly washed … We've determined that the mast and the wood on my helm top actually used to be stained not painted, the paint was flaking off anyway so we started to see what we could remove with the heat gun (sanding is next), this padded cover on the salon top isn't original in the glue was about half peeled away where it touched the wood, so now I need to glue it back down and find some decent trim to cover the seam … once I get the paint stripped and the wood varnished. Albert Bartkus when did you say you're getting here??? #MissGinger

Little update on Marianne. Starting with the Genset. 8kw Fischer Panda. Has a kubota deisel. Very quiet. This one should be around 52db im told. Also you will see the 50 gallon tank added for the deisel. Where toolbox used to be. Im not sure yet but i may have to ask to move it back more. Also all new plumbing and sea strainer. Comes with that nice sound deadening suit case. The footprint is about the same if not less than the westerbeke which had 4200 hours on it and still running. #marianne #captainalbert #northshoremarina

Broke down the couch, removed all the flooring and furniture. Got it all off the boat and opened the engine hatches for the first time since we had the boat. Notice the Chris Craft hand written part numbers on the hatches. I think thats cool. Getting closer to pulling the engines and genset. #captainalbert #northshoremarina
