Boat Painted

I’ve done the initial paintjob on the boat, which I’m sure will still be worked on a little. Left to do is more painting and finishing/sealing, and then mounting the engine and steering mechanism, registering it, and building a roof rack… and then I find out whether it’s waterproof or not!

    Perhaps this gives it character, but I clear-coated it with a gloss layer, and a zillion fruitfly-like bugs landed, mostly on the yellow part… Grrrrr!

    That’s some serious badassness. I hope the engine will at least have some glitter streamers to highlight your blistering speed.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
