Thanks OQ and Jeff! I would've finished the hull fairing today but I planned poorly and ran out of sandpaper instead :lol: Off to Lowes first thing tomorrow morning. A few more hours of sanding and she'll be ready for primer on Saturday

Checkout Ace Hardware if you have one near. The one a few miles from me has great deals on sandpaper and stuff all the time, plus they are just good people to deal with. I've been burned by my Lowes (small store) too many times.

I've caught the big box stores with their "guaranteed lowest price" being priced higher than the local lumberyard on apples-to-apples items. I don't mind paying a little more to support the local businesses, too.

Today I finished fairing under the rub rails and I finished fairing the skeg. The entire hull is now ready for primer this weekend. Still working on the darn keel shoe.

Wow! She is looking good!

Thanks OQ! I need to spend a few more hours this morning sanding/faring the keel shoe but after that she’ll be getting her first coating of primer. Very exciting stuff I’ll post pics Later this afternoon

Tipsy got the first coat of primer on her hull today! I used a little more than a quart of S3 silver tip primer. I am super happy with the results and to know that all of the hours spent faring were worth it . Tomorrow I will touch up any problem areas And give her a second coat

Looks pretty danged good, all right.
Are you considering a guide coat to help find the low spots? There's almost certain to be some and better to find out now than after the topcoat.

Hi Tony! Thank you! I haven't used a guide coat at all during this build. The natural light from the sun has been amplifying all of the imperpections on the hull as it changes position in the sky throughout the day so it sort of acts like a natural guide coat. I also used the long sanding board to eliminate any uneven spots in the hull.
