Friday's Child Fairey Huntsman 31 - Posted: 21st Oct 2018
This is a refurb. I built her from MM plan 1061 many years ago and recently found her in the loft so she has likely been up there for 19 years. The basic construction is OK but the paint is peeling and large chunks came off when I tried to pull her out of the carry cradle.
She had no name and was in a basic colour scheme but I plan to now paint and detail her as Friday's Child which is registered Southampton and lives in Yarmouth IOW.

I've started sanding but it is going to take a while.

They are a great looking craft, I am restoring one myself, please be aware that red paint may contain lead, so wear a mask while sanding.
My restoration is of a old Fibre glass hull I intend to install twin rudders and motor shafts and go brushless, I am building the superstructure from scratch with some help from old plans.
I want to have a swordsman type cabin.
