Sanding, Taping & Painting

Hi there friends . . . well, here's what Connie and I have been up to.
Sanding, taping and painting on Gypsy Rose.
We are still planning on having her in the water,
sometime in June. 
Check out these photos.

Here I am sanding the hull.
She needed it all over, deck, hull and bottom.
So far we have the deck and hull finished.

Here's Connie taping the the side.

The sun was so bright in this shot that the colors washed out,
but maybe you can tell, 
that we are replacing the pink deck with a gray.
It has a green tint in it and I think in looks so much better.
We think that the pink color was a result 
of the sun fading out a beige color.

Here's Connie painting the edge of the hull a deep gloss green.

Here I am laying in the hull paint.
Notice the reflection of the boat trailer.
It dried just as glossy.
She's looking prettier with every job we check off our list.
Thank you for stopping by. 
 Please leave a comment and let us know what you think.

  12. She looked renewed and full of life! I think Gypsy Rose deserves a special makeover since it looked like she’d been sailing the whole continent the entire year! Haha! It’s really a job well done!
