Hey welcome to the fun :D
You seem to be moving right along. Just a couple of working days and it already looks like a boat :!:

Slowed down a bit with a hurricane on the way but we got all the taping and seams glued. Transom is put together and glued. Almost time for first fiberglass layer.

Making good progress. The glue joints look good. I love this part when a bunch of flat plywood all of the sudden looks like a boat :D

Not sure what primer and paint to use... it seems very overwhelming how many options there are. But I also cant spend 600$ on paint. Any recommendations on a basic bottom side paint? Also any topside input would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
