Cut both spray rails today, then laminated a 4mm timber each side to match the top deck and transom.

Thanks Brandon,

I have been absent from the forum for quite a while due to work and getting side tracked with other projects but back into it.

My entire build is on this post, it has been going for about 6 years!

Re: Aussie Belle

Top deck sanded and nearly ready for another 2 coats of epoxy.
Marked out and drilled remainder of holes in top deck, vents etc.
Started making the spray rails which I wil continue with today.

Good to be back to the build!
