I’ve only seen one Wahoo 242 in person and it’s my buddy Dave’s boat. It’s actually the same boat on Radcliffe’s website. I’m sure Dave wouldn’t mind showing it, if you’re really interested in having Radcliffe build one.

Couple updates: grind, grind, grind.

The woven roven was pretty poorly laid up in spots with big air pockets and areas of not enough resin it appears, and some areas where they just poured resin like they were making a mixed drink 😂.

The hull was gutted and sat outside for 5 years, I dont remember it being this difficult to grind and get to nice pink and I think it sitting out open and exposed may have something to do with it. The woven roven was a really nasty brown and filthy.

Ive got half a stringer worth of grinding left, burned up one 7 HF 7 grinder, 1 4.5 flapper wheel, and no other casualties thus far.

started sanding on the hullsides as well, quite a bit of crazing on the hullsides waterline to chine. Lots of fairing in my future.

On a better note, just locally sourced Merranti 1088 3/4 for 83$ a sheet! Thinking Ill need 7.

Slick Cav are you going back in with the same size tank? If you go smaller how would you determine where to put. I have a C hawk project that will need a tank and im trying to figure out exactly where to mount it no tank in the boat now.

^ looks familiar, wish I had the console binnacle throttle control rather than the side console control...but I'm not going to complain overall!

A little late but this was well worth the money. And I'm frugal as hell with my monies.

You can actually see what you're doing when you wear this and grind. A vacuum attachment is the other best thing for whatever sanding tool you use

I've been wanting to buy a full face for a while now, that's a good price.

I recently bought some Dewalt goggles from Lowe's after hearing a tht member say he liked them. They were $20 but they do fit nice and best thing is they don't fog up easily like most goggles.

OP, I hope you invest in something to protect your eyes.

Just about done grinding. Put in another 3-4 hours hunched over, cleaned up transom, went over all stringer regions again and grinded until I was happier, then tackled the forward step up which I am not reinstalling. Flat floor no steps skinny console and a coffin box.

Spoke with privateer again today to confirm my interest in a new cap.

You may want to specify with the Radcliffe's what width you are looking for on the gunnel cap. They make a version for that hull that has washboards that are less than half the width of your current ones. If you are leaving your gunnel supports the same than they need to make you a cap like what you have. I like the way they flare inwards toward the stern. I have the same cap you have. Depends on what you like.
