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

Applied primer to the helm ceiling this morning and moved on to doing my chine cap repair. Had to rip and bevel to meet the existing. Thanks for the help Jim. #captainalbert #northshoremarina #chriscraft #chriscraftboats #chriscraftconstellation #marianne

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

We missed meeting up with so many people in Port Huron last weekend, here's some advance notice that we are heading to the Geneva Lakes Antique and Classic Boat Show next weekend. Anyone else going? … being an inland lake we can't take the big boat #MissMarianne so we're taking Petey, the tender. Stay tuned for more wooden boat show pics, I will try to post them all here or catch them on the blog http://www.lifeofacaptain.com

— with Albert Bartkus at Geneva Lake.
