  6. Ken, regarding the rubrails, here's how I did mine: 1) finished and painted the hull first 2) painted the rubrails (different color) before installing 3) glued (Gorilla glue) the lower rail in place, with screws behind, not easy 4) caulked with a tinted caulk to keep water from getting under the rail and perhaps into the screw holes. I used a water based caulk which was easy to work in and wipe neatly with a wet rag. 5) upper rail, I thought should be less permanent since it's the one that takes abuse. The lower rail may never touch anything. I prepainted the deck and the rail, then set it into a bed of NONADHESIVE caulk (Polyseamseal) and drove screws from above into the framing under the deck. They can easily be removed for repair or replacement. Here's a pic of my rails:
  7. Cockpit Drain??

    I bought an old fashioned bronze garboard drain plug that has a threaded plug. I have put off installing it, hate to drill that big hole :shock: , but will do so soon. I'll epoxy the exposed wood grain inside the hole, then set the thing in 5200. I like the solidity of it. There's no way for it to accidently come out.
  8. Chainplates

    Definitely finish the hull first, and be sure to bend the chain plates to the correct angles, as in the plans, so they point towards the tip of the mast. I highly recommend the dead eyes, too! They are so quick to adjust, which you have to do every time you raise/lower the mast, and look great, too. Much easier than turnbuckles.
  9. Seats almost finished!

    Yes! Paint everything you can as soon as you can on the interior. It's much harder to get to later. :cry: Looking good!
  10. Fiberglassing has begun

    Way to go, BJ, and good news, the cockpit is the hardest part!
