I had similar problems with my caulk (plus a couple more), but my drive for perfection leaves a bit to be desired. I figure it will fill in in time with more coats of finish. lol
Your boat is looking exquisite.

Hi all,

Well today I got to spray the final coats of poly urethane
On the hull

Reasonably happy with the finish, few blemishes here and there,
Main problem is I ended up with some cloudy epoxy in the cover boards (will have a look when it is in the sun) think I will ha e to live with it

Now to start the final it out

Really beautiful Jamie. I think anyone looking at the boat is going to be so overwhelmed by it's appearance that they will never notice any cloudiness.

Jamie - It looks really great!

Both the paint and the brightwork are top notch.

All around superb craftsmanship

I am eager to see your launch video!

Thanks for the comments gents,

Here are a couple more photos out in the sunlight showing the cloudy areas (more than I thought)

Not sure I want to strip the top deck back and go again, what you all think 🤔
