Been working on the deck and sub structure. Took a break to do something exciting so I made a template for the dashboard. The final dashboard will have two inlays of polished stainless steel. That's what the black stripes represent on the template.

Very nice Jimbob. I think the dash will look great with the stainless

Built my hatch covers last weekend and test fitted with the piano hinges temporally in place. Also fitted my gas tank. Next up are the cover boards (I've been putting it off).

Installed tank supports on the frames inside of the motor stringers. Made them long enough so that I could later decide exact placement (fore or aft) of the tank.

Installing the hatch supports was a real pain to get them right.

The hatch covers opened and closed with no binding. I was pleasantly surprised.

Nice work Jim. All the extra effort will pay off when you're finished and you don't have to get mad at the doors because they don't fit!! :D :D

Last weekend's progress. Finally sealed the inside of the boat. It was 100 degrees here, had to put the epoxy on ice. Seems like a shame to paint over the nice wood with gray bilge paint.
Anybody know how just epoxy holds up to gas & oil compared with bilge paint?

So this is what I came up with. Grey bilge paint only on the okuma plywood. Leaving the mahogany as is. The sides are next.

Got my exhaust tips placed last weekend. Turned the tips sideways, repositioned the flappers, and made wood shims to go behind them. No more "lazy eyes"

Beautiful interior work Jim. I know what you mean about the paint versus the clear epoxy. I finally decided that I would paint because most of mine won't be visible anyways.
