After a few months when I was unable to work on the boat, I have finally been able to get back to it. Got some primer on the top side this week and it feels like a milestone. Looks like I will need very little additional fairing. My motor clamp needs a thicker transom than the 3/4 inch. Does anyone have any design ideas for making it look nice and making it functional. I am thinking of using ash for the pad since its pretty hard. I have seen one with recesses for the motor clamp pads to land in for increased security. I am thinking of making the bottom edge mirror the scupper top curve but with a longer radius. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks, that's nice looking work. Did you use a hole saw for the clamp pad holes. I enjoyed your launch video as well.

Thanks, and yes, I used a hole saw on the top layer of ply.
