Midsummers eve

Today midsummers eve is celebrated at home in Sweden, but since I am in Poland I have to celebrate in my own fashion..... the boat!

I bought some more epoxy today so that I can start glueing stuff again. The first thing to get glued was the pieces for the "rudder stock".

Then I painted the boat again, only one more layer and she will be ready for turning over again.

I have come to the conclusion that the "orange peel" texture is not because of the paint but rather the epoxy below that was not sanded properly. So there is nothing I can do about it now since I have no interest in sanding of the paint and starting over. Luckily I am not building a yacht but rather a boat, so I can live with it. At least this time I remembered to tip (going over the paint with a brush after rolling)!

Happy Midsummer, Cheers!

Time today: 1.5h


  1. Glad Midsommar till dig!
