Billy.

Jaw-Dropping.

Fantastic job... I think I said somewhere that you would be "writing the book" on finish veneering for cold-moulded hulls. You have certainly set the standard here!

Hi Bruce & Steve-
Thanks for checking out my update... seems like I made very little progress this month, but pleased with how it came out. Got Don Danenberg's How to Restore Your Wooden Runabout. He had some great pictures and detail of a boat being replanked.
Steve- started at 5/32" I am hoping to leave +- 1/8" after fairing.
Found this boat building site which i enjoy watching as they show progress of a 31' cold molded runabout... they move right along with the construction
