Yes. Probably 2 layers of 1700, and I'm planning on a foam stiffening rib that will run parallel to the deck spaced midway between deck and cap. The deck will be tied into the sides, and our "cap"...

Oh man, this is like bad deja vu!!

Looks like the hull is good and solid! And as a huge bonus, it looks like you don't have to deal with bottom paint.

Looking forward to keeping up with your...

Thanks! I'm actually making some progress again now that the weather has changed a bit. Will try to get some updated pics in the next few days. Did you end up picking up the boat you were looking at?

How about the lips in the boxes? Making those up out of thin foam and glass then gluing them in before fairing? Trying to figure out all this stuff I've never done before! Thanks as always for your...

Bills106, another question if you don't mind.

How do you finish the hard edges such as around the tops of all the boxes? I noticed those edges aren't rounded over. Do you just glass the sides then...

Well, the main tank will be right at 90 gallons...it's only 5 feet long to allow room for a huge stand up head compartment under the console. I'm also running a small pair of saddle tanks that will...

Get rid of the blush and do a light scuff, 60 grit on a DA. Just enough to tooth it up a little bit, don't dig down into the fabric.

Finally got a little bit of work done. The bracket stringers are bedded in. The epoxy is a little sloppy but they're in there straight.

Medium hardner is no joke when it's this hot. I need to...

Will you go in after the fact and drill limber holes?

Have fun tabbing today!
