Looks lovely.
A couple of question if I may?
1) How (products and tips welcome) did you (or are planning to) seal under the gunwales/foredeck as my Cheshire Cat is suffering from discolouration from underneath
2)  was the transom always that shape?  As above my Chesire Cat has a full transom with transom flaps hich are always problematic...
Thanks

Re the Transom. Yes it is that shape...however it has an aluminium bar that essentially is the transom top and transom flaps are mounted to that. Contact me by email and I will send you the details of how the wood is being finished.

Five coats of white paint applied by spray gun to the hull, two coats of epoxy to the bare wood followed by four coats of two pack, also applied by spray gun and Mr Incredible now looks like this.....time for the refit now!

Fantastic job Ed. Well done!
Tell me, did you do the spray work yourself? If so what paint/varnish thinners ratio did you work to? For the initial two coats of epoxy did you thin both coats?
Good luck wih the boat.

Richard, a friend did the spraywork. Paint, epoxy and varnish were all thinned accordingly by him to enable spraying but I dont know the ratios I'm afraid.

So we have a new chapter in the life of N3274; re-launched May 9th 2015 for the second of the Spring series races at Cramond BC...sporting nearly new Alverbank sails, an Aardspars carbon boom and many new fittings throughout from Pinnell and Bax. Certainly ahead turner in the dinghy park and on the water.....and a delight to sail.

Very impressive! I need one of those booms I think.

A rather nice photo taken of me sailing N3274 to victory in Cramond BC's first of its long distance Pursuit race series of the year on June 9th 2015; coming ashore just as the sun is setting...a fabulous evening.
