Just about done

I got varnish on the inside.  We're just about done.  I have the mast built and am working on the sail. I need to make a yard and a boom. 

One more part.  The tiller.  Made it from a chunk of red oak.

I finally got some paint on the boat.  Two coats of resin first plus a round of sanding.  I also made the centerboard and the rudder.  They both need finishing but the rough forms are done.  I had enough 6 mil ply leftover from the Coot dingy to make all the parts. 

Second coat of paint.

Finally, we can get outside.  Hard winter followed by a crappy spring.  This is one coat of resin on the bottom.  I could varnish this but I think paint is the answer for a tender.  I'll leave the bow and transom varnished.
