Nice result.  Good gloss off the gun what did you use?

I spent many years ski-ing behind V-8 inboard clinker skiffs, nothing like them.  Would love one now, but not suitable here.

Used a quality 2 pac. Seahorse brand here in Adelaide. Gun finish. Looking forward to rolling it over and getting stuck into the top and internal  fit out. Doing this for a client.

Just a point of interest will be back on the tools shortly. Had a run in with the table saw. Bit of micro surgery and a skin graft required .
