This blog is about the restoration of a 1963 Fletcher Cates Moth boat. The boat was made in Haddenfield NJ. By Blair Fletcher. Blair Owed Fletcher Marine and made many boats for the Moth fleets of Southern NJ. I sailed against these boats with a Cates design by Carl Patterson. I built my Cates at Pattersons' shop around the same time this boat was under construction. This picture was taken September 1965. It's me in my Patterson Cates.

I put the first coat of paint on the bottom. It is Interlux Brightside one part polyurathane paint. I think the bottom will take 3 coats.
