Thought you would get a "kick" out of that photo. The picture was made between a landmark church and very pleasant park for which I've unfortunately forgotten their names. It's amazing how those two-axle trolleys follow their frequently winding and narrow routes in Lisbon's streets.

More on Rainha Jannota

...perfect picture from the shipyard front yard. The rain has started.

The Admiral and I spent 5 days varnishing some parts to acquire the feeling and the technique. We came to the conclusion that varnishing is all about simplicity and patience.
By the way, the varnish is Sherwin Williams marine varnish. Eight hands all diluted at 30%.

So are you the person with not to much hair. Purple is my second most favorite color, and pink is the first.

I find varnishing to be relaxing, better than weeding/mowing the law/digging in the dirt. Are you using satin or high gloss for the interior?

So how is the rest of the boat coming and do you have a splash date yet?

Hi Phill

Yes I am the hairless one! The boat, as you'll see tomorrow on other pictures not yet in my hands, will be red wine hull (burgundy, as the admiral calls it!), and light beige in the housing. The interior varnish will be finished with "cut gloss". Polish paste #1 and 2 without using "gloss pushers". By doing this you "cut" the gloss which only shines if pushed, after you use polish paste.

More pitures, now already with redwine tone!

The pink is a special product to identify porosity in the FG
