Primer really hilights imperfections. More fairing.

Hull is looking really good! What brand of bow thruster are you going with? And I am guessing it will be battery powered?

Nice job. I am amazed by the way you use that tight space.

Tight space indeed, but it looks great!

What sort of set up have you used for glassing and fairing up high, around the keel? Step ladder or something more elaborate?

I’m going to be up against a similar situation soon.

Thanks.

Hey Fuzz yes it’s electric I’m going to use a Vetus bow thruster. I put in the smallest tunnel they make that gives me a choice of a couple of different models. That I don’t need to get until later.
