We had some extra demos this year and so could afford to have the Skogar Þrostur professionally painted. LOOK at her! So pretty!

We hired Chrisholm Marina to do the work. They did some repairs and painted her to our specifications. We bought the exterior paint and they provided the interior and the black. The price was excellent and they did a wonderful job. We recommend them.

Janet researched the color scheme. In addition to the Bayeux Tapestry, which shows Viking style ships where the strakes are different colors, she also found a reference to 'colored ships' sailing up the Seine to sack Paris, and some illuminated manuscripts with different colored strakes. So we've taken the plunge and painted her in the same vein.

Here she is with no rigging.

It was SO WINDY today so here she is with the sail only partway up. We couldn't get the sail all the way up at all. We'll try again the next time we have her at a Demo.

And here's one with just the rigging and no sail.
