Painting 21′ Cape Henry Gaff Cutter


Well here we are starting the painting of the outside of the hull of the Cape Henry 21. I used 2 part epoxy undercoat and 2 part polyurethane topcoat. Which gives a very durable and low maintenance finish.


Work progressing on the topsides. The deck and cockpit are pretty much done at this stage and just need the non-slip deck coating.


And in the photo above all the white paint is finished and the top strake is ready for a few coats of black. Of course while  I was waiting for the paint to dry I was wiring, splicing and plumbing and generally finishing up all of the interior and rigging. It’s at this stage in a build that the to do list gets longer and longer everyday until the boat is finished. There are also literally hundreds of different pieces to paint and/or assemble. When you start building a boat the list is short, get materials and build boat.

If you’d like to start another boat building list why not give Tiernan Roe a call at +353 (0)86 1586937 and we can get started on your boat.
