Herreshoff Columbia Launch Punchlist.

Today, he interior was sanded and a final epoxy coating was applied. Even though the boat looks finished and ready to launch, there is still a ton of work to do....
1 Day
  • Oar Blocks attached and fitted
  • Centerboard attached to case
  • Rudder hardware attached to the transom
  • Rudder attached to the Tiller
1 Day
  • Mast constructed and shaped
  • Mast fitted into first seat
4 Days
  • 1st coat of marine varnish sprayed
  • Seating attached to hull
  • 2nd coat of marine varnish sprayed
  • 3rd coat of marine varnish sprayed
  • Hull turned over and sanded with 220 grit
  • Exterior coat of Marine varnish sprayed
  • Final coat of marine varnish sprayed interior and exterior
2 Days
  • Sail Stitched together
  • Rigging applied to mast and sail
That's eight work days before the Herreshoff Columbia Yacht Tender touches the salt in Marblehead Harbor. It won't be easy to squeeze these work days in before the 4th of July, but that is the goal.
