You really don't fool around on these do you Mike?

How do you plan to finish the glass inside? Can you wrap it up and in somehow?

The forward coaming..is thst a steam bent something?

There is a nice looking moppie in Hartford, Conn on clist. I want to buy it, but the wife would get a gun permit.

I have a 1” radius so the glass will lay down nicely. I have already done under the gunnels. Cut strips of glass in about 2 ft sections, got it good and wet and applied. Very messy. Had to wash my hair with acetone! The green material is 1/4 “ dicinycell. It is scored so it makes the turn easily. Have already glassed the back and sprayed with spray fair.

Nice.

I wear plastic shower caps in my shop. A lot.
