The Starling Project - Part 36
Another days work. I have now almost finished sanding back the center board, rudder blade and rudder head. The rudder blade was originally painted but I am going to varnish this part of the rudder this time round. It will save another round of primer, undercoat and finishing coats of paint. The rudder head is too marked and showing too many repairs to varnish, but that's ok as it will blend in painted the same colour as the hull.
It's small tasks such as this, one at a time that marks the boats renovation. The boat didn't have a tiller when I bought it so I will have to make a new one. Tomorrow morning I will give the hull another coat of white undercoat before a final sanding and finishing coats of white paint.
