That one photo with the engine just peeking out looks absolutely wicked. Like some wast powerful monster just waiting to be unleashed. This is going to be one heck of a boat! Great work on the deck too! :lol:

Great looking deck! I wasn't sure how your veneer would lay over the scoop but it has turned out beautifully. Congrats!

Regards,

Steve

think I shall use auto clear haven't decided what type yet not useing fiberglass as when you knock it it leaves white spot that you have to sand out below the glass where as with just the resin you just have to put on more to cover it .

finally recieved the fijian mahogany for the deck trim,and thought it was a bit light in colour so did some test stains on scrap was trying to match centre strip but I dont like it . I have steered clear of stains up to this point as if you have to sand it is hard to rematch. So I think I might sand it off and go for the lighter coloured deck suround.what is your thoughts,

Hi Peter,

Looks a bit dark compared to rest of timber on boat...if you could match king plank it would be ideal.....might have to break out the sandpaper Pete.....my opinion too dark...others may think otherwise but main thing is you need to be happy with it...

I actually like the contrast and would keep the king plank lighter. Awesome build!

Peter,

I looked at this for a while trying to determine how I would go if it were my boat. The dark color looks good and I think the contrast is even okay, but I own feeling is that I would want it to be lighter. It doesn't necessarily have to match the king plank, but I think the difference in contrast should be less pronounced. I know that having to sand that down is a lot of work and toy should test this on something before attempting it on the boat.

But overall, the boat is awesome and I can wait to see video of the running. Really looking forward to hearing that V12 running. Going to be one heck of a cool boat and for sure, a head turner.
