6 sounds good, thanks. I have not decided whether I was going to glass the deck or not, I will have a while to think about it.

I did not work on the boat all summer.

In the last couple days I have worked a bit on fairing the frames. One side and the top are pretty close. I had some plywood clamped on and there were only a couple of spots that need to be looked at. I used a combination of a hand plane and belt sander which seemed to work.

Here is where it is at.

Seems I was a little sloppy with some epoxy.

Started closing it in. One of the sides came in a little high but I think it be ok. Still have to clean up the front a bit, and will likely wait for the final cutting above the sheer until I flip it over.


Now I am going to have to buy another sheet of plywood.

Evan: Looks good. I left my plywood long at the shear until after the flip. Much easier to fair that way.
