One way or the other - that Gal deserves the best attire! What a beauty she is!!


Her ďinitialĒ splash and trim adjustment in the slips will give me a water line. Iíll haul her back out, paint the antifoul then have the ďofficialĒ splash

I still can't believe you've done this all by yourself. Only the artist knows when his/her piece is finished.

Geeez, like he said Matt. That boat looks so damn good, I can't bear to think of it getting dirty. I think, (borrowing from 'The Castle'), once finished, "it needs to go straight to the pool room!"
Nah....just kidding...

The boat carpet arrived so I took the templates I made earlier on in the week and took them to Chapmanís Carpet Binding. They did an absolutely stunning job. Their service was second to none and the quality of the work speaks for themselves. Definitely look them up.

Any idea of a splash date, I wouldn't mind seeing her afloat

Yer doing the right thing there mate. Way to many get in a rush to put the boat in the water thinking they will finish her in the water. And yes, its a pain to climb a ladder to get in and out of the boat While in the yard. But hauling crap back and forth on a dock is no easy chore either.
Take your time, lord knows you have payed your dues. No need to rush it now.
Keep at it Buddy, you have done a fine job on her, and when she’s ready and your ready, dont forget the cheap bottle of bubbly to christen her, save the good stuff to drink, LOL!

Hi Matt,

How will you be fastening the carpet? What did you think of Kiwi Grip?

Cheers,
Bob

I would discourage you from using carpet on the exterior part of the boat. It will trap water, never dry out, and over time destroy the gray non-slip coating you installed.

Yer itís marine carpet. Designed for exterior marine applications and itís being glued to the deck not the grey nonskid.

Alas, I think you will regret it when you discover it never dries out and your feet are always wet.
I suggest you just lay it out for the first month or so, before you glue it down.
