|The boat in the paint shop at La Conner Maritime. |
I have a nice warm dry place to work, which is great.
|Old light and new light housing. There's no good way to attach this|
to a curved surface. I have to make a new "pod" for it.
|Light pod bonded into place. Ready to start glassing it. It will look factory when I'm done.|
|The new light "pod" partially built. Outside fiberglassed into place.|
Here are a few pictures of the pilothouse door refinishing project. It takes about 5 hours to strip a door down to bare wood. Most of the old paint comes off with a heat gun and putty knife. Then a quick sanding to get it perfectly smooth and flat.
|One pilothouse door before stripping.|
|Closeup showing why we need to refinish these doors. Yuck!|
|One pilothouse door partially stripped down. Looking good.|
