Show us the finished product too please
She won't be finished on this lift
The decks themselves will be done in epoxy primer, when ALL repairs are done decks up will get sanded and painted.

But deck down will be shiney

I always admire those who have wood boats. A labor of love
Yeah, not sure on the love part, certainly not at the moment
But financially we are and always will be waaaaaay in front of a plastic variant offering the same comfort levels.

A bit of foredeck and bulwark repair has been happening as well
We tackled this lot while the paid workers do the side deck, rub rail , antifouling and paint.
