Looks great! Every build thread I've seen on here fairing has been the worst part.

Hull is looking good!
I enjoyed everypart of building a boat except this part.
It well and truly sucked.

How much do you think it weighs? If you have enough beer and friends you can move anything, but a truck crane and a bunch of tires help too.

Sean, I screwed a couple 2x4's across the gunnels so all the weight wasn't pressing on one side of the boat.
I'll give you a hand flipping it I'm sure we can find some a few more people.

This is probably the worst part, I'm at the same stage on my project. Actually sanding inside might be worse if you have a bunch of insideas corners.

Even though you guys are busting your ass, I'm envious of the fact that you're able to build exactly what you want in a boat. I'm sure it's daunting looking at what you have left, but you're going to have a hell of a product in the long run.

Sweet! What happens next? Do you have to build a structure outside the hull before you can remove the internal bracing?

Stringers, rigging tubes, tanks, floor, console...

What's the plan? Coosa or something else?

I have to take all frames out then wet out the inside with resin then grind smooth, lay up the 5 layers of glass inside hull, build stringers, install stringers, fuel tank then floor, build my cap , fish box and livewell. I'll be using the wood stringers that were supplied by Dave Sintes. The cap will be made out of foam. Still a lot of work left but I'm glad it's a change of pace.
