The work is so incremental now that it is often very difficult to remember what I actually worked on during the day. So here is what i remember; I templated the flying fish on the starboard hull and painted it. once it was dry I cleaned up the name and the two fish and then applied clearcoat over top of them to protect them. I really like the way the fish turned out. They are based on a picture of an actual flying fish which I graphically enhanced by hand and then cut out in contact paper. It's a great process. I attached the aft trampoline to see how it fits - well. It will be a great place to hang out or store stuff. I painted the graphic to the outer starboard side. Hopefully it looks good. I can't get far enough back to see it or photo it for that fact. It is totally freehand and I layed it out with help from my friend Stu. We are going to try to match it on the port side tomorrow. I also made to bold step of painting the bottom of the starboard hull and the inner side of the port hull. I left the outer port sidr for now as the side graphic goes down below the water line. Oh the other thing I did was a big clean up. Things were getting out of control.
