It's a Hillsborough county park, 4 miles as the crow flies from me. You would have fun in a kayak today! :help: We dodged the bullet. Second time this year it almost crested the bank here.

Plugging along. I glassed the gunnels, rear deck, and bow. It came out pretty good. Even starting at 7pm didn't help much as it was 92 degrees still.

Rubrail edge and hatch gutters routed.

5384

Primed

5385

Glass laid out.

5386

Done.

5387

I have a few more spots that need some glass, and then the console. After I'll work on the hatch gutters, and smoothing everything out.

I have really enjoyed following your build. You have some very good ideas and the craftsmanship really comes through. Very nice build.

Thank you guys. I didn't have much time this week but got a few things done.

I glassed the console. She is rock solid to the floor and will work well.

5419

So I've had an ongoing saga with the floor flexing towards the rear bulkhead. every other area is either reinforced with foam or extra supports. I'm using 3/8" okoume, with 6oz glass bottom and top. The okoume is so flexible that it took an additional 4 layers of glass to get it to stiffen up. so 30oz total in that area. It's finally stiff enough to move on, it created some high spots I'll need to smooth out, but not a big deal.

5417

Last thing I got to do was fillet inside of the hatch gutters. I'm using a mix of milled fibers, microshperes, and silica now. I don't think I'll go back to wood flour, unless I need bulk when gluing something in place.

5418

Pretty much all the glassing is done now. I have some filling and smoothing to do, then fairing.
