Roberta, this does nothing but demotivate me. I just don't have the patience and definitely not the skills to do this so I just say _ _ _ _ it! Yes, those blanks = the mother of all bad words and I should have my mouth washed out with Lifebuoy Soap! How appropriate.

Thanks, Bob!!

Today we did some serious cleaning in the hangar (boat factory) and got things ready for finishing work. Since I rarely get to see the boat unobstructed, I thought I would share these views. I'm adding a little fin that attaches to the hatch and goes over the tail light pod. Just some whimsy. :lol: The boat is sitting a little bow low to facilitate working on it.

Thanks, Guys!!

Should be able to get started on the finishing next week. That aft section of the cowl is still the Epifanes semi-gloss epoxy primer. Hope to get that painted next week and get some staining done on the decking. Also need to get the cockpit walls in and the controls and wiring. WORK-WORK-WORK-WORK!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
