Haven't done any updates lately. Bottom is just about done, pending some finish coats. Flipper her over, took the gunnel braces out and made new ones that connect to the stringers and a water dam, removed the cut out for the valve because it was not installed straight by previous owner, made a new one and re installed it. Fixed some stress cracks. No I just gotta glue everything in place. Do finish work and it's primer time then paint.

Couple more strips of glass on the passenger gunnel brace and they are completely glued in.

Now on the list is addressing the monster hole that was cut in the back of the transom. Made some filler pieces, back cut it, glued them in place and on to the glass and finish work. Should turn out bitchen

Nice. I seen Kelly post a pic of the rail kit. Gonna be a clean float for sure. Lmk is you need a second set of hands and eyes when you're getting ready to put it back together. I'm always down to give a helping hand.

Yeah, it's not that bad. Just making sure the degrees are correct and everything lines up properly.
