    Thank you for the reply.

    How many days should I let the epoxy on the hull cure before priming it? I'll be using Awlgrip 545.

    Looking good. Nice job on the steam bend.

    Fiberglassed the hull with 10oz glass. It us about 3.5 hours to cut the glass and wet it out.

    Congratulations Drew; your modification looks great.

    Thanks for the data Pete.

    Thanks Chick, that is real helpful.

    Getting ready to plane down a flat for the skeg. At what point on the keel should I stop the flat? Is this something that is just determined by eye? The skeg tapers down to meet the hull at some point; where is that point?

    Measured three times; the first cut into the centerboard well was centered in the opening. By moving the fence on the router in or out I was able to get the base plate of the router level and use a bearing guided bit to rout the opening. The temporary spacer board left in the centerboard well when initially inserting the module into the boat ends up getting glued in place due to epoxy squeeze out. This kept the opening consistent, but you have to cut it away when routing the opening. I glassed the opening per Chicks recommendation. One nice feature of the overturned boat is the ease of epoxying and painting the cabin roof. It might be hard to see, but there is a small gap I needed to fillet between the cabin roof and the side of the boat. I didn't extend the cleat that gets glued to the shear strake up far enough past the lip of the panel. The cleat gets planned down to match the angle of the cabin roof; if it doesn't extend up far enough to give you enough meat to plane down there will be a small gap on the inside.

    That's pretty slick, I just might try this.

    My local fiberglass shop had 60" wide 10oz fiberglass listed as available on their website. Of course, when I called them today I was informed they do not sell 60" wide any more. The widest they carry is 50". 50" won't cover the joint between the coaming and main hull (the sheer line joint?, not sure of the right term here). I could order 60" wide online but it is expensive. I guess the other option is to apply fiberglass down horizontally which would make vertical seams. What have other builders done; what width did you use?

    Nice work. Where do you plan to sail?

    Thanks Drew; I'm actually looking forward to sanding surfaces that don't have fillets.

    Boat flip. I lashed an oak beam to both of the stern eyes and screwed in an eye in the middle of the beam. This worked out well; the boat rotated easily on its center line. Everyone was amazed at the lightness of the boat.

    I just rolled; didn't even bother to tip. You can see some texture in the paint from the roller. The paint did flow out nicely; I added a lot of thinner. The fumes were pretty bad though even with a respirator and good ventillation. If I had to use this paint frequently I would definitely invest in a full face respirator to protect my eyes from the fumes.
