Hi all, I am back!
Has been quite a while since last post, no new pics yet but I am making a commitment to get this boat finished.
I got a little side tracked with a car project but have come to my senses and am going to finish the boat first.

Have done up a schedule with prices and time frames and plan to stick to it.

If you don’t hear from me at least weekly with photo updates GET UP ME! I need a kick along to make sure it happens.

Top deck sanded and nearly ready for another 2 coats of epoxy.
Marked out and drilled remainder of holes in top deck, vents etc.
Started making the spray rails which I wil continue with today.

Good to be back to the build!

Even rolled her out of the shed for a photo and a bit of sun.

Oh man. I haven’t seen this thread yet and will have to read/catch up on how you arrived here but it is really stunning. Love the wood finish/paint combination. Very subtle and elegant looking.

Thanks Brandon,

I have been absent from the forum for quite a while due to work and getting side tracked with other projects but back into it.

My entire build is on this post, it has been going for about 6 years!

Looking real good Jamie. I passed the 6 year mark myself just this last August. Hoping to get her launched (but not completely finished) before the 8 year mark. I think you will have a beautiful boat, something to be very proud of and well worth the wait. Glad you've returned to the build.

Cut both spray rails today, then laminated a 4mm timber each side to match the top deck and transom.

Will clean them up and fit them during the week
