The Drift Boat

Spent much of the last two weeks working on a drift boat that two friends and myself purchased. We stripped all the rail wood down and put a new finish on it. As we put coats of spar varnish on the wood we also repaired some fiberglass, making the thwart stronger. 

We repaired the base plate for the anchor break. Then we built a new aft transom plate out of oak. Finally, we painted the entire interior with a two-part polyurethane.

As all this was being completed we sanded and re-varnished the boxes and purchased and installed new seats.
