The Lightning, of the of the A-Cat fleet, is sporting a fresh coat of paint while a smaller B-Cat is getting some final touches by a Beaton worker. The B-Cat has just had her hull painted and looks in great shape for her summer racing campaign.

In another shop, Paul Smith is nearly finished replacing the Myth's teak deck. Notice the extremely difficult deck pattern, it was specified by the owner and Paul was the man for the job, no screws in the teak strips by the way. It was quite amazing watching how Paul measured, cut and glued each strip precisely. He is doing the final sanding and fairing of the deck in this picture, next the seams will be caulked with cordage (not cotton) then filled with a rubber compound to complete the job.
