Do you ever go to work? Sleep? Eat?

Well I think Mark jinxed me as progress has slowed to a crawl :roll:


Part of it was I couldn’t decide how to finish the top deck/cockpit edges. Of course having to wait two days to sand every time I mixed epoxy doesn’t help...Didn’t want any plywood edges showing. Thought about doing a crash pad but didn’t know if I could have done it small enough to match the diminutive size of the pee wee. If that make sense :lol:. Thought about doing a raised board or something but didn’t like that.

Finally settled on treating it the same as the outside edges. But couldn’t just use a router with an edge guide on the inside corners and maintain an even reveal... thought about making a template. But decided that with the ‘refined lumber yard’ level of finish I’m going for it was appropriate to get as close as I could with edge guide and free hand/carve the corners.

Used thickened epoxy to fill between the top deck and dash to have a smooth transition

So much for the stain on the dash

The paint I’m using. What I had..but one of the best/toughest easiest to use paints available. IMHO (Single part anyways) We will see if it holds up on a boat

Looks great, still moving along at a good pace, you hit that part of the project that slows everyone down a bit with detail work and figuring out the next step.
