I think I mentioned in an earlier post that, I never intended for this boat to have more than a "workboat" quality finish. In many ways, this project has been more about wanting a boat, and proving to myself that I could build one. A blue-ribbon, classic boat show museum piece, she was simply never meant to be.
So, aside from trying to do the best job I can on a bright-finished transom and foredeck, I've accepted the rest of the finish to be, well... rough around the edges.
Still, some of those epoxy runs on Frame #2 were just irritating me. So, today I decided to sand them off, (or at least down), since I was already going to paint another coat over it, anyway.

|The underside of the breasthook needs some more paint, too|
I guess we all are, each in our own ways.
I'll close with a quote from James, one of Jesus' brothers:
"Let perseverance finish its work, so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."James 1:4 NIV
