Re: Cannonball's FS18

Well, I'm finally coming out of the pressure cooker on my day job and decided it's about time I wrap this up. No joke ended up being a year later that I finally decided to finish the topsides. I added some additional stiffers under the decks in a couple soft spots and did some additional 12 oz glass...
