Hi all.....sjoormen ....the vessel looks good on the chocks/blocks in dock............one thing to remember is ..... :o at the next docking.......the vessel must be positioned the length of a chock/block away ....so to ensure the hull plate that missed out on the 'spray+paint' gets it next time ..................this is what happens in real marine vessel docking life.

Thanks for comment   O0 It is good to know these thing's as I am still learning.
When I was building that thing I just wanted to be strong enough for driving boat in the car,
and to be invisible as possible when on shelf then I got this idea from old photo,
and here it is. But I think some lacquer will still be required because of the water and easier cleaning.
