The Black Dragon

Thats the name right now but it will revert to its correct name once re launched.

Will checks the first gloss coat on the boat after some five months of restoration. This is a wooden boat by the way.

This standard of finish was deemed not to be quite perfect, so this first coat was used as a sanding coat and it was all removed!

This is a boat built in Sweden 1956 for the 1957 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, I think it finished third and so took the bronze medal?

Roy gets a self portrait, whats happened to my legs?

CKD Boats cc supplied much of the materials used on this restoration, Teak, Dow-Corning black silicone, ABE fairing epoxy and African Mahogany flexible veneer .
