Now, with a few blue accent stripes, and you’ll have the Navy colors!

Many years ago, we painted our classroom/shop this color of yellow and trimmed it it blue. It was outstanding!

Woohoo! Progress! The Bodega Bay Wooden Boat Challenge was this last weekend, and I think my teammate is now on board for doing a sailboat next year…

Yeah Matt!

She looks like she’s doing hull speed just sitting there. Hope the Coasties don’t pull you over…;)

Put a graphite bottom on my Eastport Pram and splashed her in Green Lake in North Seattle. Blog got derailed to BoatPartsInfo.com, but I’m in the process of correcting that. Will be back at West Marine soon and of course will do a proper LJ blog/project. Doing pretty well on Instructables.com…

Take care, Bud…

Thanks everyone…the one bad thing about this color and painting outside is that 50 bugs landed on the bright paint… so I will need to move her back into my shop for final coat…the hard part about that is when the pdr is in there it’s tough to move around it…and no way to work around it.

Hey Matt,

What sail plan are you going with? I really like my standing lug rig.

Chris…the sail plan I am using is called the Leg-o-mutton or LOM. On pdracer.com they say it is the most popular sail because its easy to rig and sail…with a high boom…i am trusting them since my goal is to learn how to sail on this boat then the Weekender is a gaff rig…

Moving her back inside to paint final bottom coat.. outside this color attracted every bug in the world…
