Once satisfied with the spars they were varnished as well * just a note: there were 4 to 5 coats of Epifanes varnish applied and sanded to 1500 grit sandpaper in between coats , then came the fitting out Sails blocks cleats, I should also point out that the Hull had 3 coats of paint wet sanded to 2000 grit sandpaper then buffed with 3M buffing compound then waxed

Finally the Roller furler was made along with the Jib, Bowsprit finalized , Standing rigging finished Solar panel made and installed along with Vhf antenna and Air cowl in the bow. In conclusion she took about 5 months to build, the Client was thrilled and said it looked even better when he saw it in person, She was a lot of fun to build
