Green paint on the Rushton

First coat is a great green.

Looks like a Rushton (New York) color.

Green first coat over Atlantic White Cedar planks & Mahogany keel changes this rowboat.

Hardly needs a filter.

Mary Sue scuffs & cleans & starts to tape for painting.

Casey does a clean up before we turn the boat from cedar planking & mahogany keel to a fabulous green.

Casey shows a visitor the interior before we flip the Rushton for a coat of paint.

Last look at the Atlantic white cedar planks, mahoghany keel & iroko sheer before we add paint to the Rushton Florida Model double-ended rowboat.
