I picked up that mahogany edge trim over the weekend and found a neat saw to use to cut out the hatch. Today I ran a test on how it will work out using my Mono-Coat trim iron. It works out really nice and sticks like crazy. The stuff is thick enough that I think I will apply it, stain it, finish it, and caulk it much like the big boat.

I put on the rest of the upper sub decking and trimmed out the cockpit shape. Later when Rich gets home, I will drill the holes for the pins that will hold the front of the hatch on. I need Rich to watch that I am drilling straight in. Then I will be able to cut the hatch out.

More pics later in the week. Tomorrow is too nice of weather so we go golfing..

Finished the sub-decking and cut the hatch out. This was a little trickier than cutting the big hatch out but I managed with too much blade wandering. A little more cleaning up and it will be ready for planking. Later I will start the motor and servo install.

Looking great Roberta. Are you going to get a Barbie doll to ride around in it? :D :D

How bout Stewart Little? He likes to drive fancy sports cars. You could also say that the boat has a big block "rat" motor.
