Thanks Rod, but I have the flip covered. Not like it's a big boat. Always accept wine though.

Guess it's been a while since my last post on the Squirt. The older I get the faster time goes by. Anyway, Got the finish coat on today. When it cures, I'll flip it and trim the sides at the shears then add trim colors.

Flipped her today and now the interior cleanup. I have learned so much from this build that I'm comfortable in something bigger. We're looking at the GlenL 17 or 19. We spend the winters in Mexico about 10 miles south of Playa Del Carmen and either boat would be a blast there.

Excellent work and congratulations on the flip.

For me, finishing out the top was the most fun.

Enjoy!

Work continues. I'm at the point now where I need the steering unit, engine control cables and seats. We leave the country for 6 months this weekend, so all I have time to do now is encapsulated inside the hull.
