Paint It Up Boat Style

We're putting the second coat of primer. 

After we put the primer on, we put on our first coat of paint. 

Now we scuffed the thwarts and prepared for varnishing.
Applied varnish on the foot stretcher brackets.

We applied burgundy paint on the sheer strake.

Oar You Ready?

We are using the band saw to cut the kabes.

Then we were putting on the first coat of primer on the keel and the garboard plank.

Now we are using teamwork to finish putting the first coat of primer on the bottom of the boat

We are tipping out the primer on the boat.

Next we taped the boat with pieces of scrap paper so the bottom paint doesn't drip to the topsides. 
Finally, we are using a plane to level and even out the oars.
