The last few weeks have been preparing for the finish coat.
I've gone over the deck, gunwale about 10 times, filling small nicks and scratches, a bit of a lost cause as it will never be a show pony - was a pro crabbing boat for 30 years.
The hull is finished - I decided to wrap it rather than paint, but just a solid colour, not fancy.
Wrap hides a few battle scars that would accentuate with paint.

Should be wrapped in the next week or so, just getting the weather right etc.
I'll post some pics while wrapping it... anyone want to guess the colour?

    Make sure your fuel breather is nowhere near any of the wrap. Fuel will destroy it.
