All frames are glued, sanded, and rounded on the inside, time for a strongback. 8)

I seriously doubt that puppy has bigger balls than you :P I've rode with you in a boat :wink: and had a couple of drinks with you too...
Interesting project you are working on, I'm following along for sure. See you in December if nothing changes...

Moving along quickly. I assume you are taping all those joints on the frames, or will you glass everything? Watching videos of that boat jumping through even a small chop she better be stiff everywhere. I know you will make something I will drool over.

Trying to find an excuse to get down and see you. The Aquarium there and others are doing some cool stuff with corals and deep water fish. ..

Thanks guys, Richard yes we booked the hotel will be staying in Orlando from December 26th and leaving for Miami the 30th.
Craig would be great to welcome you here, yes not sure yet but will use full fabric biax on the bottom, tape inside and out I think but not sure yet.

Started with the strong back and putting most of the frames up, will brace the frame supports after boxing the stringers in.

Peter, once you get to the fiberglass, I can give you specs. I ma quite buys right now but I can calculate a thinner plywood skin with epoxy glass on each side, like your CS25.

I'm surprised you didn't tape the joins in the bulkheads.

Off course they receive tape, just not now, they will be together with the hull panels and fillets once flipped.
