This is our 7’ Fatty Knees hard dinghy. Photographed in Brewers Bay, St Thomas. @jackthesailingdog and Deb are looking on from the cockpit. I had just purchased her (the boat, not Deb) off of EBay then restored her. I restored the hull and painted with Awlgrip. Added Gunnel Guard around the parameter of the boat. Painted the inside with an epoxy paint and restored the wood. Sure was pretty.
3 1/2 years later. Used everyday. Gnarly dinghy docks, Caribbean sun, hole poked in the port side and oil stains from Trinidad have taken there toll. It’s time to freshen her up. Hopefully there will be enough $$$ in the budget to repair her this haul out. Keep your fingers crossed.
Oh, did I mention that we are going to be giving away a large print from my gallery? Details soon! 😎😉⚓️
