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

Rebuilt my flagmast. This one had fallen off the boat during my reassembly a few years ago. Found a backup in MI and the hardware was good but looked like a homeless flagmast. Have to get some new burgees to fly. #captainalbert #chriscraftconstellation #chriscraft #chriscraftboats #northshoremarina

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

This is how things went down today in a video nutshell. Seems every yard has their own methods and system and I enjoy seeing it. The guys were thorough and know their craft.
She is tucked away and although the video is a brief recap, this process did take a while and I suspect these guys stayed late to finish. We are the last boat in and tucked away. Ready for the next step. #northshoremarina #captainalbert #grandhaven
