Dang that's looking good. And we've only got one part tinted. This will be a show stopper on the water.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement. It keeps us motivated.
Got a coat of epoxy over the entire deck last night. Will sand it today and if possible get the tape down to cover the planks and head into unknown territory with the "whitened" epoxy. More pictures soon.

Amazing looking boat! Always look forward to a new post on this thread with hopes of new pictures.

What are you guys thinking on finishing out the cockpit? Surely you guys are making the seat?

The cockpit is going to have a bench built for it. I found a local guy that makes seats and he is going to take a look for me once it it back on its trailer. Nothing too complicated. Straight bottom and top. I'll cut the plywood and epoxy coat them before bringing them to him.

I'm thinking something like this:

Hull is going to be red, so I think the seats will carry that tone too.

This is what she looks like now with a coat of epoxy on the deck. More of a true representation of final color I think.

Sanded the deck down, and since Kyla is off for vacation starting tomorrow, we hope to tape off the deck and seam fill before the holiday. Then the plan is to epoxy the entire deck and add 3.25oz cloth to provide a little protection. BBC had this cloth in a 60" width which should cover with one piece. Fingers crossed.
