K45 8 rater yacht revamp - Posted: 2nd Mar 2018
This is just a revamp of a second hand 8 rater yacht. I brought it as I really like these boats but it is a white boat.

Did I mention White as in you can lose it in snow, White hull, white deck, white sails. Boring as heck but was used solely as a racing boat where as I prefer the real yacht look so a revamp is in order.

The first item is the deck, I was going to remove the white round hatch but the deck is so weak and flimsy without it I had to keep it 😡 Still, a wood strip deck is being laid direct to the old deck with the intention of a clear varnish coating once completed.
