When building the new spar, the hardest part was not to jab it into the basement ceiling when hanging it up after varninshing. I got 6 coats on and was going to do eight, but the sixth one turned out flawless so I said leave well enough alone.

The only short coming of this boat is the size, which I new when I made the decision to go big. My house is pretty tiny, and moving it through it can be a challege. Next, house will have a room with a cathedral ceiling so I can have it rigged for display. Right now it banished to the basement by my new bride (at least the basement is finished).
