Staining 18′ Faering and other projects

IMG_0032Here’s the 18′ Faering that I’m building at the moment after the first coat of staining. The client is hoping for a blackened tarred type finish with the low maintenance of and epoxy coating.

In other news the tiny 6′ punt that came in for resotration is now finished including a new set of custom oars with nice Turks Head and leather detailing.



You can see a before picture below. I was able to retain much of the original structure of the boat while restoring her to usable condition.

This was a very enjoyable project and hopefully the little boy that the boat was built for, now aged 84, will be delighted to see her ship shape and Bristol fashion after many years.
