Sorry to hear about the funeral. I've been attending an unusually high number of them lately. by the time I get to mine, I'll be an expert. :)
I've been struggling with which paint scheme to go with also. I want to go darker colors on the hull but everything I read advises against it. Plus I know darker colors really show up imperfections. I may go ahead and flip it after priming and try to finish coat it on blocks later. Gives me a little more time to ponder it. :doh:

Started work at 1:30. Busy morning in shop. I got more fill work done today. Third fill at bow.
Used 150 grams of Quick Fair today.

Second fill on these surfaces.
Trying to spot fill the lows and not waste the Quick Fair.

Put it down heavier here at transom.

We have a hot streak of weather this week here. It's 77 degrees right now. That's warm for this time of year.

That's going to be a pretty looking hull, good thing you are taking pictures. Such a shame to turn it upside down and hide it in the water! :lol: Seriously, it's looking shapely.

Eric have you checked the bottom of the hull for flatness on the last 6-8' of the planning area. I'm a little late in bringing this up but it is important. Just take a six or eight foot straight edge and run it from the transom forward along the keel line. There should be no big dips or humps along the straight edge lines.

Keep on going your doing great.
