 That is a sweet boat , I should have bought it, but the fleet is getting a little large around here  ::), my jet boat in the garage (with the mustang and the bike and jetaholics motor) the Daytona on the side of the house behind jetaholics boat (the only time he will ever be in front of my boat  ;D).  Its starting to look like your shop around here  ;D ;D !

Re the gunnel ,Since I photo everything I'd be suprised if I don't (i'll check at the shop) I "dug it out (it was burned completly thru to the reinforcing plywood) the heat had melted all the resin away and all the was left was fuzzy shredded glass fibers. I  reinforced it and with  a "kitty" hair product then finished it with bondo and primer and a "close" rattle can yellow  Tom
