Buck Frost from Itchiban Yacht Painters came by the shop to discuss painting Reliance; we now have a plan!
Keith, Bill, and the crew installed our portside toe rail; now all the toe rails are complete. Burr also helped fabricate the metal fantail piece. (We’ll show this installation in a later blog. The fantail will still take a little effort and metal persuasion to join to the toe rails.)
In the meantime, Bill couldn’t wait to try out the Awlgrip 545 Primer and 3M Marine Filler.
When the team left for the day, Sandy decided to have some fun and complete the task of filling and fairing the starboard side. The next day, Ken came by on his evening constitutional to check out Sandy’s work. Next thing Sandy knew, he was watching a tutorial. Better yet, Ken did more in one hour than Sandy had done all day!
Now, Reliance has a new look! The hull shape really stands out now that the toe rails have been blended into the hull. Simply beautiful and powerful…
