It was another inside day again today so after walking the dog (before the bad weather returned) it was time to sand & finish off the display stand (just needs a couple of coats of epoxy now) & cut & polish the hull ready for reassembly
Quite pleased with the result after a very light cut & a coat of polish will add the final shine once all the rest is assembled.
Also got the sliding hatch cover re-glued to the recently repainted cabin. Real pleased with the way the Antique White came out, really suits it against the polished deck & black trim.
Definitely worth the extra cost to get the colour matched to the original finish on “Badger II”.
Also got the cabin door clear screen refitted & sealed into place ( opted for a diamond pattern glass rather than the plain clear glass – just because I had some)
The rudder has been sanded down ready for a very thin layer of fibreglass mat either side, which hopefully will stop the rudder from splitting all the time with the slightest bump.
Hopefully tomorrow the rudder will be done & then to start on cleaning up & painting all the deck hardware, rails etc. Might even get the waterline pinstriping & the stern labelling done as well.
