The completed hull is covered with select #10 canvas and filled with our own hard wearing filler. The filled canvas is painted with Pettit marine enamel in your choice of colours. The interior is finished with four coats of marine grade spar varnish. All screws, tacks, stembands, and other fasteners and hardware are marine grade brass or bronze.
