Purrfect preparation

My dad is a busy bee at the moment preparing my beautiful Nocturne for our holiday. She’s having some TLC and a makeover. Dad gave her a sand down with 80 grit paper. Then she had a couple of little blemishes filled in.



It’s quite a big job to do but it’s worth it because I think she looks even more stunning once it’s done!



The progress is pawesome already don’t you think? I can’t wait to go and inspect dad’s handy work!



She’s now going to be treated to a sand with 120 grit paper and finally another sand with 240 grit paper! Once all the sanding is finished she will need to be stained and varnished. Hopefully I can help with that part!

  1. Bailey, I’m sure you could help. What grit is your tongue? 🙂


  2. Lots of work indeed – a boat is a hole in the water into which one pours money. 😉


  3. Enough work just on a 20′ Flying Fifteen – I don’t envy you that task. Worth it when you are finished, though!


  4. You’re such a BIG help Bailey and I know your Dad will appreciate your help on the finishing touches before you head out to sea!

  5. How exciting! Your human is working so hard – your Nocturne is going to look fantastic, Bailey!


  6. your Dad is doing a CATABULOUS job!


  7. Well done dad. It’s not all fun and games at sea


  8. I’d stay far away from the varnish Bailey…that could be bad for your furs…Nocturne is a gorgeous boat and she’ll look super when the work is done


  9. Wow. I didn’t think your beloved boat to look any better than it already did. Just make sure you don’t rub your fur against the varnish until it is completely dry. I did once when my mum was getting a wardrobe ready for our house and my fur stuck to it (which mum wasn’t happy about & she likes my fur). Your dad might not be too happy about that & I had to have a sponge bath which I wasn’t too happy about.

  10. Don’t get sticky paws Bailey.


  11. Sounds like your dad is doing a fab job, hope it doesn’t take too long


  12. Beautiful!


  13. There’s a few days’ work. Bailey, that varnish would tarnish your coat. Better leave the finishing work to ‘dad’.


  14. Stain, varnish and kitties are not a good mix. Hope your dad finishes that project before you get on board. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


  15. Nocturne is looking good!
