I am sure being able to see the end of the fairing is a good feeling. Seeing as you will want the decks to be non-skid I bet you will not need to do much on them. and then you can move on to something that is not an endless circle :wink:
Spot on Fuzz! The decks are the only areas I reckon I'll enjoy fairing, because it shouldn't require a lot of work. :D

Really looking good! But, but, but, still have to see what it looks like under the peel ply!

Bear in mind OQ, I'm under strict instructions from Fuzz to undress her slowly. :wink:

Maybe some light jazz, soft lighting and a mild red should be considered as well.

Any time you can sit back to some light jazz, soft lights and a light red is a good time. :D :D :D

Hey Michael, are you still planning on putting white Tessilmare 50 rub rail on Skinny Dip? :D

I will do you a special deal on about 13 M of the stuff! :lol:

Long story, and I will post more when I get back to civilisation (including video) - but I rolled the rub rail off the bow of my boat in rough seas!

Its not going back on!

Tom, you were right - the boat looks much better with a black rub rail, which is what it will soon get!

PS: Seven of us caught 40+ Barramundi in 8 days on the McArthur R - including a number of PB's on lure (95, 88, multiple 86 cm fish)!

Now at the Barkly Roadhouse in the NT, headed for home.

Ha Lee! Our posts crossed.

Sounds like you had a cracking fishing adventure in one of the last remaining wilderness/semi wilderness areas on the globe.

Well done!

Looking forward to your reports. :D

Lee black is what I thought back, when a 6 months ago? It really sets off the lines.

Take care, have a safe trip home, sounds like you had a wonderful trip :!: Look forward to the pics and description.

Sorry for the hijack GB.
