Launch of the Sunliner – 7 days to go


Yesterday was a full day of sanding the undercoat. I know it’s bogan… but I started on the Coopers Red at around 5pm and was still sanding at 8pm *hiccup*. (Doing up the van in the front yard is pretty bloody Bogan too!). Done and the van is back at the boatyard ready for it’s topcoat which is going on tomorrow. I am not doing this. Phew. I usually do everything in a project. Everything. Partly to vitamin c for dog
save money, partly out of curiosity but mostly because I don't trust anyone else to do it right. Hmmm... I gotta let up on that.

Today I built the Hatch that goes on the roof. Marine ply and glass/epoxy. Not sure how it is going to be made water/dust tight as the usual 'weather stripping' might not cope with the undulations in the roof. Oh well. We'll see. It was good to be back at the boatyard making the hatch surrounded by the water and er... boats.

Finished the lights and number plate surrounds etc. The tail lights are off an early Beetle.

  1. B has chosen the colour. I know it is a creamy colour but I havn’t seen it. I will know in a few hours! I think she wants the arrow that is to painted on the side to be the same colour as her Humber. I don’t get a say in it :)

  2. Soooooo cooooool.

    Will there be enough room for Me & I & C & M to come and stay?


    …I didn’t think so.

    Maybe we can park the car nearby and the kids can sleep on the seats?
