  1. Bob, thanks for this, and all your other fascinating posts.
  2. Hey hey! Very nice, and congratulations. Now go get her dirty!
  3. 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.

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