Well at least you don't have to strip it.

Quick old boats those. 
After I built a Mirror with my dad, I badgered him for ages to get one of these.
No joy though, just a clip round the ear.

Get it on the water.

Thanks Pierre - and I thought the same about the lack of varnish!  It will get on the water, but it will take a while I fear.

A brush down and loads of vacuum cleaning is a good start.
Then so long as it stays reasonably dry you are off to a flyer.

We all look forward to the pics of you girls out on the water
in that 14 btw.
How exciting.

Cooooool.

It's only sad if you don't use it.

:-)

Mind you, stuff is ggod, because you never know when you
might need it, and it's nice to know that you can if you wanted too.

When I took the chute out yesterday I discovered the builder had painted his intials inside - MAT, along with the year - 1973.  It's as old as her indoors!

It's always nice finding, or leaving your mark for future generations to find when they pull things apart. I dated & signed a boat I built a few years ago....but for anyone to see it again they'd have to have virtually destroyed her    !!

On houses we've had in the past I've left messages under the wallpaper, & I left behind a really nice oak fire surround in our old cottage with a card from me & my old Dad. Wish I stripped out when we left....... being the last thing my Dad helped me build.
