The parts of the decks that have already been done are now forming a nice sandy beach!! Talk about foredeck sunbathing :-)

I really like the surface the sand creates. It’s very smooth, completely matte and yet shiny somehow…

  1. Really nice surface indeed! Looking forward to see her in real life.

    Are you bringing a portable compressor so you can do some surface trimming if you get scratches? I guess you will have plenty of sand in some of the places you will visit!

  2. Actually one of the advantages of a sandblasted surface is that smaller scratches and damages do not show very much! As the metal oxidizes the surface grows darker and more matte. Takes a year in the Baltic, quicker in real seas…
