Thistle 1040 - Finished bow tank


By Thistle1040 - Posted on 07 April 2012

Thistle bow tankI now have the bow tank painted and finished. I'm happy with how it turned out. It's stiff and light and it's about as big a tank as you can get in a Thistle. It does have less volume due to being crowned so that the sides are about an inch lower than the center of the tank. This promoted drainage and the curved deck is stronger than a flat deck.

I now have several coats of urethane on the gratings and am making the mast stanchion. Once that's done, all I have to do is the seat supports, seats and thwart. Those should go quickly as I have them all made. I just have to install them. Once the interior is done, the boat will be ready to flip and then I'll start on the outside which will be faired, glassed and painted.
