At 8 below zero the last 2 mornings. and single digits for a month now it seems nothing is getting done except alot of pondering. I knew it would be this way but man I am ready for March.

I have been using the time to draw out the longitudinal cockpit sides, seat tops and thinking about the electric and gas lines.. as well as drainage.

longitudinal cockpit sides

Everything is fitted dry. I would like to see more of an even gap all around but I am not too sure I really need it perfect.

Very nice.
I was happy with the way mine all fell into place, too. You'll be able to get a lot of filleting and taping done in two days.

I got some filleting and taping done.

everything on the inside exept the seat half frame to the longitudinal seat frames.. I need tape there.


mid frame fillet to bottom


Mid frame to side


transom to side.. I would have liked it all to wet out this well..

now for a couple final touches on the inside all of an hour or so and then I can flip this burger and get going on the bottom.. maybe I can have all the material on by the end of the month.. fingers crossed.
