That looks normal for me :) I do like folks say: feather the edge. Takes a minute or two with power, a bit more if by hand. Then Quickfair is very much your friend.

Could someone tell me how make stern knees? I tried already and they came out completely wrong. I lined up a piece of flat wood with he transome and traced a pencil line along the upper edge. I cut it out and it was completely off!

Use a piece of cardboard as a template, scribe from underneath with a pencil and take in account the bevel.

The time came to get my boat out of my apartment and lower it 35 feet to the ground below. I used all my old knots and rigging from my rock climbing days as well as few awesome people in the neighbourhood to smoothly execute this absurd event.

Disrobed and resting on its newly built sawhorses. It was a great morning!

Wow! It's been a long time since I've post anything. Progress is slow since work now depends on the weather. I'm trying to get the bottom fiberglassed before winter sets in. I have taped the seems on the outside of the hull. Now, I believe the next step is either fair the hull then cover the it with fiberglass or cover it with fiberglass then fair the hull. Could someone tell me what order I do this in?
