A record of the renovation of a
Wooden Drascombe Longboat 'Otter'


12th June 2007. Second coat on roof and coat on decks.

.Second coat of white International Brightside on roof.

One coat of Interdeck on decks stippled with hairy roller.

I was planning to paint all the vertical surfaces except the cabin sides. Now I am tempted to varnish them. Trouble is they are not 'clean'. The inside of the hull has got lots of stopped holes and some filler. I even wrote P and S in black marker on the sidebench sides before I assembled them. You can see some filler on the join in the bulkhead at the rear of the cockpit.They have one coat of epoxy. Maybe I will leave them like that until after the Calshot Rally then try and clean them up.
