    Is emailing Brightwork possible within this forum?
    How does a person determine his address? Thanks for your help.

    little more progress....I may or may not change the galley lighting. The mast and bow light were older rice lights, the rest are LED the rice lights died after an hour even though they are 3V. Will replace over the rainy days. Added a bit of furniture.

    That is one beautiful boat BW โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ And great furnishings.
    Love the comfy looking armchair and sofa. A post on how you made 'em would be very interesting. What's next? The flat screen TV and HiFi?

    Well done on the progress. Good you are able to work a couple of hours on her. For me working on my boats and projects takes a back seat to golf season. If lucky we have a 6 mo. season for out door activities I find working on a boat is for the cold and winter season.

    The decks are just mahogany planks then 6 coats of Satin varathane. The house is mahogany with Semi-gloss varathane. The interior and inside cabin walls etc which are balsa all were stained with Minwax wood finish "Sanora Red". This is the best to get as close to mahogany colour as you can. The wood filler is "Famawood" - the best out their.. it does not shrink or crack, can be stained etc.
