That is sweet!

Also I like your clever use of the clamps- running a board across the gunnels and setting the clamps up "backwards" to push instead of pull. that's a great idea.

As soon as that sets up I would put some heavy duty plastic sheeting or some other material on top to protect it as the build moves on. 8) 8)

Sole looks great. Very professional. I hope I can duplicate the results when the time comes.

Very nice! kinda reminds me of a combination of the dash panels we did for the Jetabout, with the color scheme (red and black carbon/kevlar cloth) and the bright finished (white pigmented epoxy filled) deck. Are you going to carry that red/black trim theme a bit further? Can't wait to see the finished product.
