    You are looking good there sir. I am right about there myself and starting to wonder what is the best glass for the hull. Allen did tell me but i failed to write it down( typical me) What did you go with. I seem to remember Allen saying Biax 1708 but for the life of me cannot remember. I like you also like to over build a little for some reason.

    Few pics from the build. Took the advice from Designer and used SYP on the shear clamp. Am now starting in on the side planking

    Dave. That's exactly what i did with my Marissa. I picked up the wiring harnes and the network bits along with my steering hoses and fuel line throttle and gearshift cables ETC from the dealer and rigged them before the deck went in. then when it came time to drill holes i took it to them we made marks on the transom where it needed to be drilled then i took it home drill and glassed ETC and took it back for the final rigging. Worked out quite well i think although was a bit of a hassel. Hope this helps

    Yup glassed with 10 oz cloth then hit it a couple times with resin and a drywall knife to fill the weave. Finished with marine paint with the non slip business in it

    So the bottom is on and am now looking forward. What is the thoughts on using that same old heart pine from said roof deck for the shear clamp. It is old but strait and can be made to fit the bill. Other than that the bottom went on very well and it is really starting to look like a boat Eye am watchin you

    Thanks again. The only reason i was looking at the cypress was a fellow locally said it was flexible and folks round here used to use it in that kinda situation. i can find SYP in clear and machine for a much cheaper cost so that is what i will be doing. Working on the chine battons at the minite.

    Technical question. I have started looking for some wood for the shear clamp and have found a couple rough sawn 3"x12"x12' pieces of clear white cypress. They are not cheap and my question is. Is it worth the cost to make life a little better on myself for the shear clamp. i figure i can resaw and end up with the grain going in my favor.
