198 viewsAfter wild scampering to get all the little bits together I was ready for a first try in the lake.

We managed to get Cricket out of the living room to the car and tied her to the rack. We had to add some 2x4s to the rack so it would be wide enough. Finally we made it to the Lake (Lake Ontario)

197 viewsAfter prebending the gunwales for 3 days I started installing them. I dry assembled the first 2. One scarf joint failed while I was adjusting the other side and since it was perfectly clamped in place with only a partial delaminate I just reglued it in place. The other side went on relatively easily. The shape was improved slightly. Side curves are more smooth.

196 viewsAnother layer of primer went down after the chicken pox above were smoothed over. Then...final color! The paint is a two-part epoxy paint (epifanes polyurethane). The blue wasn't dark enough, so I went with 2 cans of blue and 1 black.

195 viewsThe outside of the Skerry gets 3 coats of epoxy. Here it is after the first overall coat. Its so magic to see the wood just come alive with the resin. Its a shame I'm planning to paint the outside of the boat. I think it would be just too much wood but I am tempted.

There are surprising few drips. I applied quite a thin coat. It needs to harden now for a couple of days because I'm planning some serious sanding on the outside next.

The Skerry has a pretty shape.

190 viewsFinally put a second coat of resin on the bottom and on the first panel (garboard), and a first coat on rest of the boat interior. Looks pretty rough but I'm happy. Long day but lots to show for it.
