Netting on the scuppers?? :doh:

On a lot of sailboats, the transom scuppers are very large or open transom, a filled or slow draining cockpit can be a very dangerous. Winch handles and other things tend to get washed overboard. A net can stop the item and still drain quickly.
Makes sense. On all my anchor lockers I am putting in silicon sink strainers before the drain chases. All the grass, mud and sea creatures will be strained out before going into the drain tube.

I'm going to double the size of the scuppers. I was worried about stuff getting in (because some of my time will be in the Waccamaw where there's snakes) but a following wave is a bigger concern

I obviously don't have full grasp on the cut and paste function

You could always add custom flappers like SkinnyDip has!

Today I installed the skeg with two layers of FG tape, fared and shaped the center board ( it’s ready for fiberglass cloth now ), enlarged the scuppers and did more sanding on the hull

Everything looks great! What is the last picture of? The round white hole?

Thanks, OQ! The last pic is the pivot end of the centerboard. The plans called for an optional (but recommended ) delrin ring so the pivot pin doesn't bare directly against the wood of the centerboard. I went with the 1 1/4" PVC instead. I was too wore out (or lazy) to label everything :D

I feel like you need to find some sanding to do...

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.

Pretty sure I'm maxing out my production rate. At least that's what my body tells me :D The nice thing is that every job I'm accomplishing at this point sort of feels like knocking out a bunch of little punch list projects. Allows me to work on multiple things at the same time.
