One Dutchman repair completed. Just a bit after of this one, also in the first topside plank, several more, albeit much smaller, Dutchmen await John’s attention.
The TotalBoat Thixo Wood thickened epoxy blends beautifully into the surrounding mahogany.
John is still faced with addressing two fastener holes – bungs will do this job, and a hairline split for which Famo Wood is the material of choice.
Once he has addressed the other starboard Dutchmen needs and sanded everything fair with 40 grit, we will apply two coats of varnish to protect the wood until Minnow returns to her owner in Oregon, who will have the pleasure of restoring all the bright work.
