Thanks for the kind words, still grinning a day later.

Funny you mentioned climate control. Ideal Awlgrip painting weather is upper 70s and 50% humidity. Have been waiting much of a week to paint. Between the rain from the Noreaster and cooler temps it wasn't happening. Finally the skies were forecast to clear but the building and boat were in the 60s. So we built a fire in the wood fired boiler the day before and brought the boat and building up to 80 so that we could ventilate the building but have the paint kick quickly. Worked perfectly!

Looking forward to Ft. Pierce.

Splash time is coming quickly. Just have one or two things to attach.

These paints are stock colors for Sean. If there's to be any touch up work, he'll be doing it.

Ted

I'm looking forward to seeing pics of that Ice Blue in daylight. I bet it's stunning.

Here is a picture of my charter boat. The colors will be the same on the trawler. Above the cap rail is Matahorn White (slight hint of grey). Hull is Ice Blue. Bottom paint will be the same blue. The cap rail and the boot stripe are same dark blue as the the boot stripe in the picture. This is early morning in the boatyard and the blue is getting tainted by the color of the sun rising. Hopefully you can visualize the color combination.

Here are some more project pictures:

The Nick Jackson dingy crane paint was looking rough, faded, and had a chalky surface. So figured it would look a lot nicer with a fresh couple of coats of Awlgrip. Here are some pics from the yard today with Sean applying Awlgrip Aluminum primer. Will receive 3 coats of white tomorrow. While we were at it, the mast, base, and trim ring were also done.

The boat came with a nice custom mast that held lights, weather station, radar, and TV antenna. Very nice if you don't mind a 22' air draft. Lowering was a pain and because it rested on the dingy bow, still stuck up quite a bit. So we ended up fabricating a new mast from my old 23' VHF antenna, some fiberglass and Coosa board. Basically, Sean spiral wrapped the mast with biaxial cloth to strengthen it. Then he fabricated the mounting points for the different items. Finally it was faired, sanded, and Awlgripped.

The original mast.

Here is where all the lights will be mounted. The top will hold the anchor light. The vertical flat surface on the right is for the masthead light. The 45 degree sloping surface on the left is for a deck light to illuminate the boat deck. The triangular area in the center is the wiring junction area with panels on both sides that are held in place with 5 screws.

Below the lights is a platform for a Garmin twirly bird wind speed, direction, and air temperature sensor that is wireless and solar powered.

At the bottom under the blue tape is a heavy duty position locking antenna base. This will be mounted on the back wall of the pilothouse about half way up. There will also be an antenna standoff mount at the top of the pilothouse to stabilize the mast.

The radar will now be mounted to the roof of the pilothouse. The TV antenna will be replaced with a Tracvision satellite dish. A larger VHF antenna will also be mounted on the back wall of the pilothouse. With the VHF antenna and the mast up, I should still have an air draft in the low 20s. With the mast and antenna down (should take less than a minute to lower both) the air draft should be around 15'. Planning on doing the Great Loop in 2017 and see a lot of low bridges in my future. 15' air draft should also make the ICW South of Stuart faster with now only having to wait for 6 or 7 bridges.

Can you ask Sean if he has anyone, maybe a long lost brother or cousin that is on the west coast who does the quality work that he does?

I'm really impressed with all the work you have done, pat yourself on the back, and better buy Ole Sean a nice bottle after all the work.

Gonna be like taking a a new boat out when it's over. Congrats!

Sorry, all of his family is within 50 miles of the boatyard. This is small town America at it's best. He doesn't drink or cuss. Boat certainly will look almost new when he's done.

Appreciate your kind words!

Thanks Chris! Both Sean and I are anxious to see the completion.......maybe for different reasons.

Ted, the only Awlgrip on Moonstruck is on my shift and throttle balls. Sorry to report that I do not have golden balls, but my balls sure are shiny.

Thanks Steve! It became more complex as the build proceeded. "Hey, while were at it, let's see if we can add a deck light to it. Think I want to mount the twirly bird on it also". It should work well, but have to wait and see.

Guess I'm ok with you liking your shiny balls. Maybe too much information.

Holy crap, Ted. Remind me to check your location constantly so my poor old Manatee doesn't have to suffer the indignity of the inevitable comparison.

Are you sure you want to put that boat back in the water?

Larry, you know I'm only doing this to make a big impression when we crash the East coast TF geezer rendezvous. We need to start conspiring making plans for the West coast armada.

The other side of that coin is that every time I dock, everybody is going to be watching the shiny boat. Nothing like an audience to watch the potential screw up.

There are 2 boot stripes. The bottom blue (third stripe) is where the barrier paint and bottom paint will start.
