Looks awesome. I hope that my current project has the level of fit and finish that your boat does. Really looks good. I expect you will get a lot of admiring stares and people asking what brand of boat it is.

I just used the EMC for the first time. The clear coat for my gunwales. That is some great stuff, and while it isn't free it still is way below some of the other stuff available. She sure looks shiny and smooth! Love the color scheme. The Phantoms are one of my favorite designs from here and you have done it more than justice!

Will, it is looking awesome! You're almost there!

Are you going to take the boat to the Port A builders meet in Oct?

I am thinking about it and it would be pretty awesome to have a couple new Phantoms out there!

First class work! You bet you are going to love the topside paint, it will be easy on your eyes.
I don't know what it is about the phantoms, I have seen three of them in person and they all look fantastic 8)
Your build is going to continue to raise the bar...

Thanks, guys. It sure does feel good to get this far. I also have a gallon of grey kiwigrip which will cover most of the deck and sole. It ought to break the sun glare further also.

Dustin, Port A in October could be fun and I will keep that in mind. Is this the wooden boat show that's been covered on the forum before?

Yes it is the Wooden Boat show, Let me know if you decide to head make the trip. My boat will be kept in a boat barn in Port A half of the year, so it is no big deal to head down for that!

Be pretty cool to show up in force for Bateau!

It for sure would be fun to meet up and see your boats. I plan on bringing my SK14. I did call 'em and confirm it's on for this year, Oct. 20 as I recall. They don't have the current website up yet.
