    It does look rather good sir I bet it was hard attaching it to the deckhead like that though but it made the painting easier i am sure

    I just spent a couple hrs wondering around my local Home Depot then Lowe's and did not find anything that fits the bill. Might have to fabricate something or use wood. Will look around online and see what turns up there

    I was wondering how long you let them cure before bending onto the hull. Thx. I am gonna take a look around and see what i can find in the way of a form and see about getting them made during the week. Finishing cloth is on and now it is time for the real sanding to begin in earnest

    Thx guys lotus i have checked your lifting strakes out and am looking for a piece of angle to try and do the same. It looked a lot easier than the norm Jay i agree they would be redundant but i just like the look i guess, still on the fence though

    Thought i would post up a couple pic's of my progress on the batou. Have finished the first of 2 layers of glass on the exterior. Chines and keel have extra layers. First layer is 1.5 oz per sq ft chopped strand which i have sanded the highs of around the chines and keel then filled the mat to the best of my ability at least. I have a few little spots i want to address as can be seen by the blue painters tape then it will get the 10 oz finishing cloth on. I do hope this is gonna be enough because i have just about had enough of the chopped strand nastyness ðŸĪŠ I have hit the bracket with finishing cloth already then applied a coat of plain epoxy to fill the weave and it looks good to me so i am hopefull. Other than two little hollow spots up in the bow flare area it all looks great to me right now but i have not got it wet yet so fingers crossed. My next thing to overthink is gonna be to build it with a splash rail on the chine or not. I think they look nice but it look's like it might be a bit of work, but i am telling myself i have to install the lifting strakes and a tumblehome bumper so why not just do it all one time. All in all i am very happy with the boat so far.

    Ditto that sir I have been asking myself the same question. I have it marked on the inside but forgot to transfer it to the outside like a wally. You are looking good there, i can see you have been working out with the long board.

    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
