Beautiful work! I love it!

You are inspiring me. ... along with a lot of others here. ....inspiring me, I mean.
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

Bryan, 1/4" ply shims I cut. Thought about tile spacers, but I never got them. The ply seemed to work well for me.

Go for it, Dave! I'll warn you: it's an obsessive thing building a boat!

Spray rails added and will be painted to match the WL. Wiring about finished. Fuel line in. Gas tank in but not secured. I have a long way to go, and the progress is slowing.

I decided on white seams, and glad I did.

Thanks you all! I'm currently masking off the sides preparing for spraying Interlux 2 part poly, and praying all goes well.

Bob, it was a pleasure meeting y'all! When you said "I sawed it off at the waterline" I knew who you were!

Glad to meet you too Bob! It was a pleasure! Today I'm shooting the last 2 coats of perfection plus on the sides. No pics because the shop is a little dark, though. I'm 90% done, with 90% to go!
