Construction of gunnels is complete. Just need to fill gaps and glass the seams today!
Feeling pretty good about the way it turned out.
Prewired them to save my back from having to fuss with it later.
Next couple of weekends will be dedicated to fairing and sanding. Then Paint!
I still have the rear hatches to build and I still need to fuss with the front hatch hinges to get them right but we are getting close to the end.

Thanks Guys! It's getting more exciting for me as I round the bend on this project. Can really see the lines now that the gunnels are glassed. Once faired I will send over a few pics. Also decided to go forward with Seadek after clenching my chest like Red Fox when the quote came in! Made some adjustments to bring the cost down by almost half. My V-pattern and lining up the brush lines doubled the material costs. Here is the new layout.
I think it's really going to look nice against Snow White interior and Stars N Stripes Blue Hull. Planning to go with Awlgrip. Then a touch of Natural White Ash on the rub rail. I hope it comes out as nice as it looks in my head right now!

Thanks BB Sig! I think so too. I received the mylar templates back from the Seadek Dealer. Amazing how well they interpret my tracings on their scanners. Very minor adjustments.

What is that under your gunnels that is connecting to tubing? The white boxes?
