Wellcome to the forum!

Great work. The boat looks really nice so far. I needed 10kg of epoxy for all the glassing. It's really important to mix every patch of epoxy for some minutes. I had some problems whith epoxy that did not dry because was not mixed good.

And glassing the hull can be messy. Don't forget to layout plastic on the floor.

Have fun with your boat!

Great build and that is a great boat. I built one 13 years ago. You will love it!

Nice and fair, looking great 8)
The chine step on the side will use a nice amount of thickened epoxy to fill them. You can use some scrap plywood strips in the chines to fill them some before filling the chines with the thickened epoxy to do the chine flats. It will save you plenty of epoxy using that method.

Build on :D

Great idea! Definitely going to put some wood scraps in there to help fill it in. Thank you!

Sanded some more today. Hoping to fill the rest tonight and potentially tape the seams.

Hey Zac,

Looking for a specific dimension. On your transom edge, where the side panel meets the bottom hull to create the chine.... How high is the side panel from the transom bottom edge?

Thanks!!! Appreciate any help....
