I don’t know if the pictures will really show it, but Tardis has a coat of primer on and to me is looking more and more like a real boat.
More on the paint and process later, but so far, so good as to overall finish. Some filling to do, but manageable.
While the paint dried, took a drive up to Waterford to pick up more paint supplies at Defender Industries, and while in the neighborhood stopped at Mystic Seaport to check progress on the rebuild of the Mayflower (a 1957 best-guess re-creation of the original) and repairs to the steamboat Sabino.
When John was growing up, no trip to Mystic was complete without a ride on the Sabino. The smell of coal smoke in the air while docked at Mystic on our beloved Memsahib was like perfume to a lover of all old artifacts . The volunteer who checked my membership card coming into the Museum noted that I have been a member for just over 30 years. So I guess I am becoming an old artifact myself.
