Thursday is a go. After 10 hours today I have about 4 hours left to finish up.

The windshield took a lot longer today than expected and I did not get to work on finishing the cockpits until almost 4pm. I ran out of connectors that fasten it to the deck. I need 10 more to get the windshield base to line out properly. But it is solid for now.

But the rear cockpit is done.

The front cockpit starboard ceiling is awaiting the helm connection. The dash needs to have the final wire connection to the wiring harness. Rub rail, cutwater and t-bands need attaching.

I expect to be on the water by early afternoon. I have a 6pm function with the ACBS gathering and hope to make it. But launching is more important.

Friday will be on the water all day.

Smile? I will reserve the hand clapping for now. But the smile is beginning to emerge as he closes in on the finish line. 8)
