Painting and Tiller construction

After laminating the Huron Pine I then cut out the rough form for the tiller. Huron pine cuts like butter and looks like butter when oiled with boiled linseed oil.

The tiller in its' finished form after initial oiling.

Posing with my new tiller, but I should be painting.

Seriously applying a coat of filler/primer paint.
Installing the Port side rubbing strake with the aid of my Canadian friend Wes who was visiting Australia in December.
