Bugs (Formerly Surprise) | Thursday, October 21, 2010

After picking up the new vinyl, which I'd had made to the owner's specifications at a local graphics shop, I spent the remainder of the morning laying out and installing the new name and hailport on the transom.  I laid out a vertical centerline, then arranged the graphics temporarily to check the placement. 

The vinyl featured gold leaf vinyl with a dark brown outline to match the boottop; I applied each color separately, beginning with the brown base, with the gold leaf laid over the top and centered accordingly.



Later, I repeated the process with the new registration numbers on the bow, which featured the same colors and font as the transom.



During the afternoon, I wrapped up the deck cleanup and buffing in the cockpit, and a few areas on the coachroof that I'd not been able to reach from the staging during the earlier session.


Finally, I sanded the cabin sole, cleaned up, and applied the third coat of varnish.

Total Time on This Job Today:  6.5 hours
