Thanks fallguy,

Not much to post other than grinding more getting ready to install stringers and cleanup from transom.

I found a couple cracks in some resin P&S sides between stringers and hull side so I decided to fillet the chines, tape and add a layer of 1708 just for my sanity🤪. I figured whith that and the overlapping from the stringers it should stiffen it up.

Someone sent me a PM when I first started about the work involved and it rings in my ears or is that all the grinding 😁.

At least I know what I have when I’m done. Do they make a Light weight 300 hp. Might need one when I’m done :doh:

Got a couple stringers glued in today. Lots of thickened epoxy 🤪. One side each glassed in.

The 17” tall monster is next😁

When I get frustrated and think I’m not getting anywhere, I just look back at this mess!!

Starting to look like a boat Travis.

Be patient man. My boat is gonna go to 36 months most likely. Pretty complex build.

You'll need to start planning console and rigging.
My boat build is here -------->

Thanks fallguy, it sure is. I checked your build out and man is that intense. I thought I had a tough job😁.

No worries I know I will get it done. Rigging is gonna be simple, one chase up front to console and one chase from bow to console. Not much going under the hull, livewell, fuel ect all top deck.

I did already plan on adding drains in the bow locker but they will drain to the deck with through hull fittings that I can plug when using and leave out when in storage.

Still kicking around the foam thought not sure what’s right fill it full or just partially and glass over the top of it :doh:

About the foam. Do a little rough math and see how much it will take to totally fill below decks. Looking at it I am guessing it will take a bunch.
