 we catch nothing . It is not only a fisherman story , i have pictures of fishing days , 10 years
 ago and there were fish ! Sea bass , mackerel , Bonita's , scalping's , halibuts .....

Welcome July 2009

Final on Kent boat ... painting the mast .
Some project like " Kent " did start in May , to understand it , you should scroll down .
Thanks . 
Philippe .                                                                                 

 Ok ! I give you a ..........Short cut

 
 BEFORE                                                            AFTER                             

 I do love mast painting ...

 
 
 
 Just be sure , you have a good friend on the deck safety line !!!!!
 I will test video editing on the site  next week .. up & down  the mast will be a good test

 the " vue " is great ... 80 ' up water



July 08 ... back to earth ..
We are starting a 1959 old Woodie .. leaking . it is normal for a wood boat to leak a little , it is good to have salt water at the bottom of your bilge , but not to much or you will sink . 
Dry Rot came from fresh water infiltrations ( deck corners / windows joints .... )
In this case i will sand the hull & bottom / Smith epoxy , seal bare wood / West system all  cracks /
Epoxy primer / 3M marine filler underwater ,  minor cracks ..... & for the fun: 2 coats of Awllgrip LP.

 
   July 10 .... more work then expected ...
 old woodies
 are dangerous for the business !
   
  Sunday July 19

 Sea Myst ( California marina ) July 06 2009 ........ 
 should be done by Friday
     
     July 10 2009
