I have a supply of cry rags. Remember, the mantra is slow and easy but measure - remeasure and them measure again before anything is plugged in.

Dave Lott made me feel guilty so I sanded all the sealer off at least on one side so far. Amazing how many sanding marks were still there. My fingers are all taped up. Will try to complete sanding on other side Sunday. Then sealer again. G4 seems so close.

Its best to check any and all of your bare wood for inperfections with Denatured Alcohol which will show simular conditions with sealer and varnish coats and show scratches. It will evaporate quickly leaving no residue for additional sanding or create issues of the lack of bond like most thinners. Its not toxic like the acetone either. Use clear cotton rags such as worn out tee shirts or for the final wipe downs, cotton baby diapers if you have them or can find them being sold for rags.

I go the local hotels and get their throw aways. I have bags of 100% cotton hand towels and wash clothes. Once the edges are frayed they have to be replaced at the hotel and it sure is a waste to see them thrown away.

Just got both sections of the bottom covered with fiberglass 4 oz cloth.. This was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I have been worrying about this step for a while so I.m glad it is working out pretty good. thanks to Bob Perkins , Dave Lott, and of course Oyster.

Pot, meet Kettle. HEHE! Don't pay no never mind to Dave. He is just a sanding grunt attempting to scan for some sanding marks so he can sand a bit more. Get back to work Dave! :wink: You gotta deadline to meet, more pictures to post of your own, more boats to build. :wink: :P :lol: Great to read foward progress John. Hopefully others will take notice too. :lol:

Very Nice!!!!!! That looks like work fit for the sides too. Its nice to see the same care taken for bits and pieces thats rarely seen. The reflection shows a flareless and uniform surface.
