Thanks JimmY. Hope to have it ready for Memorial Day.


:?: :?:

Would there be any benefit or downside to adding intermediate lifting strakes or maybe a reverse chine strake/spray rail? Or both... I’m a little concerned about getting on plane with 5hp with both of us on board.

Looks good! At this point make sure the bottom is good and flat the last several feet. It's easy now. It will be a PITA later!

Thanks for the heads up... just checked it. One side is perfectly flat. The other has a dip of 1/8” or less over the last two feet... how much is too much?

As I said, easy to fix now. When you go to run it, and it starts porpoising it will be more work. You'll have to pull the engine, flip the boat, sand the paint off, fill the depression, fair, repaint, flip, remount the engine... Get the idea?

I had the same type of "hook" on my boat. I was able to fill it with a fairing compound I made with epoxy and a mixture of microballoons and wood flour. I put packing tape on my four foot level to screed if off level. Let it cure and then long board sanded. It takes a little bit of effort but as Bill says, now's the time.

I second what the other guys have said. Much easier now. Later you are dealing with matching paint and polishing it.

No worries, was planning to fill it after Bill mentioned it... was just looking for how flat pretty darn flat needs to be.
