No- I didn't even make it up to look in person after hearing the 'firm' price tag.

I'm glassing in the last knees. One of the knees is a chase for the fuel lines. I installed 4" PVC under the deck to the fuel tank. There's a 90 degree fitting under the knee. I don't think the fill hose will make it through without kinking. I see there are 90 and 45 degree elbows available. My concern is the elbow making it slow to fill the tank. Also leaks. Any one have experience with this?

I've been trying to finish spraying gelcoat. All I can say is spraying gelcoat is the devil. It hasn't gone well. The second gun I tried has a 3mm nozzle. It did better but still wouldn't spray much gelcoat. Quite a few days of work for subpar results. Three coats and it's still pretty easy to see through. Not sure if it's too thin or I didn't add enough pigment. Anyway I'm over it. I'll be painting it this summer. Tomorrow i finish the trailer and put the boat back on it. Sunday I have some help coming to put the gunnel cap back on.

Did you try using Duratec additive while spraying? I have had good luck with it in a 2.5mm tip gun. It is expensive though.

Haven't had a chance to work on it much lately. Decided to paint over the gelcoat. I have non skid on the gunnels. How do I prep the non skid for paint without sanding all my grip away?

rig looks great! i want to say most people throw the top coat down while the other coat it tacked but not cured to avoid prep work. Im sure others will chime in.
