A clean Slate

So, after ripping out all of Flirt’s furniture, I took a hose to her and rinsed out all of the interior to rid her of the choking resin dust that had been building up inside. It was the only real way to clean everything out. Thankfully I had not installed my garboard plug yet, so everything was able to simply drain out the hole in a sloppy, goopy mess of water, resin, and stuff I cannot identify.

What that leaves me with is a clean surface to work on so I can continue to cut and grind away her internal supports and get everything right. By the end of the week, they should all be gone and I can get on with strengthening Flirt’s hull and getting her ready for new furniture.

A long time sailor who has been away from the water for too long, I am working hard to bring an old and abused boat back to life. When not working on my boat, I can often be found working as a Stage Hand in Atlantic City or just out and about on my Mountain Bike. I really come off as a quiet and boring person when people first meet me.

  1. Those photos bring on flashbacks of my own project!bIt wasn’t long ago my own hull looked like yours (albeit wood), and now, a few months later, I write this from the comfort of my quarter berth as the rain falls outside.

    Keep up the good work! I’m glad I found your blog. Cant wait to see what you come up with!
