Bow-sprit and the blues

Three 1″ planks of Celery Top for Kermadec’s bow-sprit are glued together. The middle piece of timber is shaped to final dimensions + 2mm. Once the epoxy has cured, I will take off the bulk of the waste with the power planer, and then use the sander for the last bit. Then I can think about the other taper …


The kayak (Plyak) had a coat of the blues, and the top had another lick of glossy PU. In a few days, when everything has really hardened, I will give a quick rub-down with steel wool and final allover coat of PU.
