Shamrock V "J Boat"


I've been working on adding details to the deck houses. Specifically, I'm adding brass bars to many of the windows. This has become a slow and tedious process, but plan to post pictures soon as each house is completed.

I just finished another "deck house" this evening. Once again, I took some "creative liberties" by following my wife's suggestion on the choice of wood, and by adding a brass trim.

Note: once I know the exact location of each house, I will be sanding the base to fit the curve of the deck.

The brass trim looks great! For now.

What about preventing the inevitable tarnish?

I either need to let it all tarnish and accept an "antique" look, or apply a clear coat to the trim to all the bars on the windows... I'm fine with an "antique" look, as long as the entire boat ages uniformly. I'm expecting the varnish to also "age."

Yeah that makes sense. I did not know that varnish aged and got old/tarnished looking?

I expect the varnish to get a more "yellowed" look as it ages.
