Dodging the rain showers all day, but finally got the first topsides coat on:


Also gained a fancy neighbor:


Moon River is a brand new, Sam Devlin designed and built, “stitch & glue” plywood, very expensive vessel. The paint and varnish is perfect. I don’t think I could own a boat that looked that good, even if I could afford it. I’d be heartbroken with every little ding, scratch or smudge. SKYE is certainly catching up a bit, in the looking good department, however.

If the rain refrains from being a pain for one more afternoon, SKYE will be back in the water late Thursday (or maybe Wednesday?).
