Finally ready to flip. I hope it is supposed to generally look like this.

Nicely done Chris! Can't wait to see it flipped, as I am sure you are also. Skip

Let us know the date and time. If I'm in the area... Pretty iffy. But, it may work out.

I work in Covington M-F but live on the Southshore, so not that far away... I may be able to come over and help with the flip as well if you need hands.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words.

I had no idea how many hours and the amount of sweat it would take to get to this point. JimmY - The finish is two coats of CPES, three coats of Silver Tip epoxy over the fiberglass (sanding in between each), three coats of Interlux Perfection Plus color and one coat of Interlux Perfection Plus clear. I intend to add at least two more clear coats on the exposed wood portion when the deck is finished for UV protection. Many thanks to Skip for taking me through the finishing phase in these last two weeks.

I plan to bring five of my guys from one of my construction projects close by and maybe a small cherry picker for good measure; so we should have enough manpower for the turn. Thanks to everyone for your offers. I will post pics of the turn when done.

Wow! Beautiful boat. The finish is awesome. Thanks for the paint info, I hope to be to that point soon.

A milestone day. The flip went quick without mishap. Thanks to everyone’s advice and generous posts to get the project this far. Generally the forum members are novice boat builders so these builds would not be possible without the people on the forum helping each other.

Enjoy the pics. It might take a few posts to get them all in.
