Getting the Bottom Done - 13

A wood boat of this size has some half mile of seams between the boards. All of the seams were scraped out, primed, repayed, and painted. This took about 160 man hours of work. I wanted to go down to wood below the waterline to find if there was any hidden rot and I found none. This made me very happy, and is a tribute to the quality construction of this vessel.
