Looking good.

I know what you mean on the sanding. Some of the builders seem to enjoy it. Not me, can’t wait to be done and fabricating something.

Keep it up. The finishing stuff always seems to take a lot longer than you think it will. Just keep doing a little bit at a time and you’ll be on the water before you know it.

Yes I remember it well, I drove to Ocala as soon as I got ahold of him. 2 years later I'll be glad to get it done. Another coat or two of paint then the Cream KiwiGrip Goes on!
