The Princess should be ready for launch in a week or so for shaft alignment and sea trial. Finishing touches such as cutwater may take a coupe of weeks more. First clear coat layer today.

I just love that natural wood look. I am definitely going to try and incorporate some of that in my build. Probably not the whole boat because she's a different style, but at least as an accent. Great job!!
