This blog is devoted to my John Welsford designed 15' Navigator yawl Ellie. I built her in my garage over a period of 18 months and launched her in 2011. She sports a sliding gunter main, roller furled jib and sprit-boomed mizzen. Her construction is glued-lapstrake over permanent bulkheads and stringers. This blog is a record of her construction and her voyages here in the Puget Sound area and (hopefully) a useful resource for fellow Navigator builders.

Interior Paint

Not much to report this time.  Just lots and lots of interior painting.

It takes me between 4 and 5 hours to put on one coat of paint.  Each coat requires 48 hours to dry before the next coat can be applied.   Can't really do much else with wet paint lying around so it gets to be somewhat of a grind.

First coat - blech!

But after 4 more coats it's looking much better.

Next, on the agenda, laid decking for the seat tops.
