Not quite done yet

One more thing before Xiao Feng is properly done.... Paint her name on the transom.

It was a lot easier than I feared, I printed out the characters on a piece of paper, taped it to the transom and traced them with a ball point pen. The pen makes is small indent in the transom paint and all I needed to do was to fill in this outline. Instead of using a paint brush (shaky hands) I got a paint marker called 'POSCA', basically a felt tip marker but with paint inside! I heard about people using it to decorate surfboards so why not boats? I will apply a layer of transparent acrylic on top for abrasion resistance.
