  1. Looks like a fun trip. On a side note i cannot believe what a neat and tidy workspace you keep.
  2. Yeah the whole hatch has started to cup so to speak. It was nice and strait when all finished but over the period of a few days it has distorted . Had thought about going for and aft but prefer the look this way. Maybe this pic better shows my grumble
  3. Wow that is looking very nice!! Outstanding if i do say so
  4. Thanks Lotus. I kinda modeled it of of some of the lines from your Marrisa console I am having a bit of a fit with those hatches as they seem to be fighting me. I machined up 3/4" Sapelle stock then steamed it for a couple hrs and clamped onto a jig to dry. When dry i biscuited them into board big enough for the job ( 3 separate boards) Which had a nice curve to them and when those had dried cut to shape and clued the edge on. All was fine for 3 or 4 days until they started to curl up . I am leaving them alone in clamps for a while to think about there future
  5. Thanks for the comments Lenm I have two 1" pipes that pass through the battery box and the live well and exit through the transom under the swim deck. Then over those holes are two ball style scuppers.
  6. Looking downright neat and tidy. Keep the pics coming
  7. I can vouch for the CSM being a bit tougher to work with. I used it on the outside of my current build under 10 OZ finishing cloth. It worked fine on the bigger areas but on the chines it was a little tough to get the air out and keep it out.
  8. Luck. Don't think you need it your of to a grand start. I do not envy you that job
  9. A few pics of the recent progress. Have primed the gunwhales, rubrails ETC. Made some new hatch covers as i did not like the others, still not sure about those either They seem to be curling up if that makes sense.Right now am working on the cap going forward. All in all a little closer
  10. That looks very nice.
  11. That is looking very nice! I have always used the dry method when applying glass and have never had a problem yet.. I make sure the hull is dry and clean, lay out the cloth and smooth out any wrinkles. Normally start in the am and do 4 pieces over 4 days, sanding the seams on the chine and stem so as to make for a nice bubble free transition. Hope this helps
  12. Yup .. Just need to cut the hole for hatch Think i am going through the bulkhead as i was thinking about going through the top but that would be kinda silly i think
  13. A little more progress on the Oc 20. Gunwhales have been fixed and are close to being ready to glass. Need a little more sanding on those rounded edges with a profiled block maybe, just not quite happy with them yet. Have installed rub rails which i am hoping to glass with the gunwhales one time and will be painted with a stainless rail. Finished out the shape of the bench forward and made some hatches. The hatches on the transom for fish box and bait well are gonna go i think as i do not like them. Have the console roughed out and kinda ready for glass. Also have fixed the swim deck down and am ready to get that all glassed out and into primer. Got a price on a custom gas tank and had to pick myself up of the floor, guess that will be next
  14. Nice One !! That looks great
  15. Wow that's more than i would have thought nice ...
