    Enjoyed the video. I always learn something from watching how you work. Thanks.

    Based on earlier comments, I had made both sprits a little longer for my 17, and I am glad to have the extra length for flattening. In fact, I then had to in effect "shorten" the mizzen sprit a bit by adding a little line tag to the clew of the mizzen so the sprit would set further back and not interfere with the main. That is, it was so long it was poking too far in front. Make any sense? But it was much easier to do that than make it too short and have to scarf in something later. Ask me how much longer? Can't remember. If someone needs to know, say the word and I'll run out to the garage and measure.

    Always fun to watch work by folks who know what they're doing.

    I used the Chick method. That may be because I wasn't smart enough to know about Quick Fair at the time. Occasionally I had to go back and add another coat of epoxy (or, better, slightly thickened epoxy) after some initial sanding as the skin was getting too thin and the cloth tape was coming through. I was happy with the results and felt the structure stayed strong. But it was noisy, dusty, and tedious. You all know better than I do, but I'm assuming Quick Fair is suitably strong, not just a "skin"?

    Congratulations. I watched the video twice and still not sure how it all happened. But it did!

    I'll defer to Graham, et al, but the edges of the bottom paint line and boot stripe lines all need to be parallel to the WL. The bottom paint line and boot top lines are *not* a constant thickness throughout. The boot stripe will likely be wider at bow and stern than in the middle of the boat.

    Wow! That's stunning. Did I understand correctly that you used foam instead of plywood?
