Not trying to discourage you from doing bright work, just giving you the reasons why I chose against it.
Same here! Look at Cape Man's OD18, Hybird (sic) MF14, Peter Curacao's Rum Runner, Joel Shine's runabout, the sole of Cracker Larry's GF18 . . . more work to do, but they look great. And they took longer to build- your choice, some guys want to get on the water as fast as possible, or save the extra touches for the next build; your build, your reasons.

Another option would be to use a touch of bright work somewhere it was easier to do, but highly visible, like trimming a cockpit edge, or a rail on the console, etc. Or not.

Check out Glossie Black's ST21 also. Touch of wood on the coaming.

Good thoughts. Maybe I'll do some trim pieces etc.

Were they able to get the glass out of your finger? Take care of yourself, Jeff

Yea, they had to cut it out since it was buried. It's been in there for a couple of weeks. I thought I just scraped it since it didn't swell until yesterday.

Nothing worse than a foreign body pain. Well maybe some things are worse, but they suck.

Taping the joints on the floor. Using peel ply to get a smoother joint so fairing will not be as difficult.
