I'm going to try and do some glue work today. I've been down since last Thursday with my back again.
I'm trying to think ahead on my build concerning where to place everything. I want to do a through hull pickup.
Do I need to make shims to plumb this vertical or is it ok to mount it at the angle to the hull? I'm nervous about cutting a hole in my hull. :lol:
I want a wash down and bait tank so this is a must.

I'm going slow but making progress. The cleats are on the sides out to first frame.

I'm using the left over mix to fill the top of the stringers between the other cleats.
At least the end grain of the ply will be sealed. Don't mind me, just looking for a silver lining.

Really nice, but you know you are going to want to do some sanding there! :)

Thanks. I will sand to confirm level.

I added these vertical pieces to gap fill the front and back of the fuel tanks between the frames.

Your work looks outstanding as usual for you.
The only time I have worried about mounting a transducer level is when it was for a depth sounder and even those I only did for bigger boats.

I'm feeling a little achy, sick coworker was out yesterday with fever. He's he coughing.
Got me paranoid. I don't want to get sick.

I'd be looking for a bottle!

Eric, your "dirty work' makes my "clean work" look... let's just say you'd not approve. I love the quality your work displays. Great example to your girls.

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.
