I got one of the forum moderators to start a Bluewater Trawler section in the Trawler Builder forums.

See you there.

Pictures of the boat would be great, especially project pictures.

Thanks.

It was a project that I delayed starting for a long time because I new it was going to take longer than one winter. I kept patching it for 8 years until the dock helpers hand went through the side of the Portuguese bridge.

Once I started the project, wished I had not started. Was way more rot and bad wood than anticipated. Ran into several obstacles and head scratchers that defied a solution. Quit working on it more than a few times to take a break.

Being in a boathouse was nice but it would get down into the 30's some days. Tough working with epoxy at that temperature.

Glad it's done now.

You're welcome.


I've learn to bite the bullet and get it done. Projects get bigger the more they are left to time.

As one who did not the teak 8 inch rail cap and bridge rail cap and and and. You and I agree. Death to exterior teak!!!!

Refinishing teak takes a way from nap time.

Teak care takes time away from boating.
