Start by sanding the ends with the sanding stick included in your kit. Next round the bottom edges to glide through the water. You can vary the shape.
Apply several coats of water based paint. Let dry. Apply at least two coats of acrylic gloss enamel paint. Paint mast if desired. Apply decals, etc.
Center hull on outriggers. Secure with screws that are supplied in the kit. Do not press screws too hard or they will sink in the balsa wood. Use Phillips head screwdriver to attach outriggers.
It is best to use permanent colored markers to design and color your sail. Use a pencil to outline your design first before applying permanent marker design on the sail. Allow time to dry.
Once you have completed painting and designing the sail, it is now time to assemble the entire boat. It is best to use a little super glue to attach the mast to to hull of the boat. Make sure the sail is free moving and it can not be attached to the boat.
A crewman to sit in the hull of the boat is optional. The best crewmen are Lego figures with short, unbend-able legs. You can choose to freely sit the crewman on the boat or superglue the figure into the seat designed in the hull of the boat.
