We’ve Got a Hurricane Headed Our Way

Hello everyone!  I know, I have been terrible about getting anything up on the blog lately, but trust me when I say the past week has been a fury of boat work where we’re up and at it from basically sunrise to sunset.  I have so many wonderful posts to share from the past few weeks (months?), although I just need to find the time to sit down and get them typed out.

We have, however, put another episode up on YouTube that we hope you’ll all enjoy.  In this episode we prepare for Hurricane Matthew, spend two days waiting for the worst of it to come and pass, and then get back into our daily routine of boat work.  The next project featured in this video?  The cabin sole.  We add our quarter inch maple to the existing half inch plywood we’d already cut, focusing on the area from the forward salon back to the pilot house.  We’re very happy with how it all came out, but take a look for yourself!

  1. Good job Matt and Jessica!
    Enjoyed the video and seeing the work you are doing.
    It’s been a long time, but you are on the downside now….good luck with getting it finished.


  2. Since these videos must be a ton of work, I thought you might like to know that I actually used your technique using the small foam rollers in painting the forecabin on the Tardis. Came out great. You can see the results on the MVTardis blog.

    What kind of epoxy did you use on the maple floors? I bought hyper expensive Interlux 2-part varnish for mine, but I’m thinking of putting some of your stuff underneath to provide a tough base and so I can stretch my $100 varnish over the whole thing.

    One of the nice things about these videos is that we get to hear FROM Matt as well as hearing a lot ABOUT Matt. When will Georgie make an appearance?
