A few updates as I got to put some paint on it finally. Did 2 coats of bottomkote, 2 coats primer and 2 coats blue polyurethane. I’ll do one more coat of the blue and then pull the tape and add a white stripe. Then once it cures I’ll get it back on the trailer so I can start on the inside. Trying to work on it while on the horses is a bit sketchy.

This forum, as always, lacks a "like" button.

Finally done with the exterior paint! Also refurbed the trailer and replaced all the running gear and got it painted up. Now that it’s stable I’ll get to work on the interior paint and wood work!

looks like you are getting some excellent advice. All I can add is that you must get the Styrofoam out of the seats and forward compartment and replace with closed cell foam(pool noodles). this should be an easy topic to research on this page.

Yes tons of great advice! Lots of great info lately too. I was really worried about the rigging but feel confident about it now. Will sail it in a tame stock form at first but would love to outfit it with a spinnaker eventually as well.

The next project is to remove the foam from the inside of the seats and replace with pool noodles. I have some port inspection covers I will be installing into the seats as well.
