|The topsides were sprayed Navy Blue (the
original color) with Awlgrip back in 1978 at Hartge's Yard in Galesville,
MD. Though the years have added some scratches, Mirror Glaz wax still brings
out the shine. We renewed the sunflower yellow boot stripe (Auart
Pettit #3415) in 1999 and applied a new gold coaming stripe
(self-adhesive tape) in 2001. That same year, we painted the decks, cabin
sides, and cockpit with Petit one-part marine enamel. We also duplicated
most of the worn exterior teak trim in mahogany and applied 6 coats
of Captains gloss varnish. The trim pieces were never installed and remain
un-weathered and like-new in our garage. We've also kept the old teak trim
pieces. See Schematic for profile drawing.
