I started fitting the back deck and installing gutters for the hatches. I also glued down the center console with gelmatic and taped the outside flange.

All three back hatches were clamped and glued with epoxy from the topside of the deck. I glassed the bottom of my decks with 10oz plain weave and glassed in the gutters from underneath. A pvc spigot will be glassed to the back corner of the gutters which will be drained directly into the motor well. I am also installing backing plates and anything else I can think of before permanently gluing down the decks. Here are a few pictures of my progress. I hope to splash this thing within the next 6 months; I know this goal is very ambitious.

I managed to get the back deck glued in place last weekend. I began fitting the front decks yesterday evening. I probably should have routed a 1/8" groove in the deck for the hatch gutter flanges to sit flush. Sometimes I do things the hard way. Just a few pictures of my progress:

I spent several hours each night this week building the rub rail and toe rail. I am pretty satisfied with how it turned out. I plan to use a vinyl rub rail with a stainless steel insert.
