The Open Door Boatshop has been busy this last week. After successfully applying the new Wet Edge Cold Cure Topside paint in Lou’s drafty and mostly unheated shop, he has decided to varnish the covering boards and the rub rail. It’s an instant upgrade to this working boat and will really show off the grain of the special pieces of wood Lou applied to the skiff. Using Lust varnish, Lou thins the first coat to penetrate the wood, providing a sealer coat and to expose any imperfections in the wood. This upgrade to the skiff will really dress it up nicely and it will surely turn heads in any harbor – whether it’s hauling quahogs or taking a civilized sunset cruise.
WE are drawing close to the end of the build and invite you to come to our Jamestown Distributors Tent Sale on April 22. Lou and the skiff will be there, along with filmmaker Halsey Fulton. Come see the skiff and meet Lou! You won’t be disappointed – he is as much of a character off-screen – as he is on screen!
