That looks like top quality work my friend. You will appreciate the time and care you gave the layup as you transition to fill and fairing. Really looking forward to seeing it come together!

Thanks cape man, glossieblack, Eric, Jeff and DAYTRIP.
I had been pushing pretty hard to get to this milestone before things got busy on the farm, and the plan is to now be concentrate on the skeg and the swim platform.
Unfortunately, I have not had any time spare time to spend on the boat since I finished the laminations :roll:
Fingers crossed, I will be able to get some time in later this week.
But I have really have been enjoying following everyone else's builds.

Happy building,
Reefie

Thanks mecreature and deuce.
I still have a few things to bowl over before the fairing... but I am psyching myself up for this part of the build 8O

Cheers,
Reefie

I am betting your fairing is going to be much easier than a lot of ours has been. Only bad part is there is a lot of boat to fair. That dude is going to be 100 foot long before you are done :lol:

Hi Guys,
I haven't had much spare time to put towards the build lately, but I have managed to glue on the swim platform bezel and start laminating up the panels for the swim platform deck insert.

Things are going to remain very busy for the foreseeable future so I will only be able to get little bites at the build for a while :(


Happy building everyone.

Cheers Reefie

Wow! That looks really good!
