Iain Oughtred's Stickleback canoe design built by Adrian Gingell - what a stunner!
Today was a good day - I managed to coat the gunwales with Deks Ojie - several coats as they dried nicely in the sunshine. Also managed to give a final coat of International Toplac White to the interior and the outer coaming. so she is now drying in the garage......all that has to be done now is
a) primer coat on hull
b) several top coats of Toplac burgundy colour to match the sheer plank of Arwen on hull
c) four more varnish coats to deck area
d) putting on some side ropes around deck
e) putting on painters at each end
.......oh yes.......and finding some cheap double blade kayak paddles.........sort of a necessity really!
I'll leave this post with another shot of Adrian's stunning canoe......
The one year I don't go to Beale...........and the sun is actually shining!
