Fantastic Job, on the boat and documenting it! Always eager to see your next video.
Thanks

Thanks for the compliment, yes on the windshield, yes on the fuel fill cap, also adding step pads, cleats, bow rope guides etc. I built a stainless cutwater and transom bands as well, the zip will be dripping in "bling" not sure about a cockpit coaming yet, i also like the crash pad surround idea, too early to tell just yet. I just finished uploading this months video to youtube tonight.

Built another painters shanty, stuffed a couple heaters inside and rolled on the first epoxy coat this morning, as soon as it greens up i will roll on another, the weather has nothing on me :lol:

She looks great! Sure is fun when you get that first clear coat on and you step back! You think, "DAMN! I did that!".

Thanks Bill, Jenko, today i sanded the deck and edges smooth with 80 grit, wiped it down with denatured alcohol and taped it off for the second epoxy coat tomorrow morning, should smooth out quite a bit with the second coat. 8)

Well today i filled the rear deck seams with a mixture of micro balloons and poxy shield, 6oz of epoxy added to 6oz of micro balloons gives me a bright white, easy to sand seam with the consistency of toothpaste that can be buried in top coats of epoxy (forever seam) i used a cake decorating bag with a 1/4" round tip to pipe the mix into my seams, worked out really well, the seams need sanded flush as there are a few places where the epoxy mix seeped out of the groove, it looks a little sloppy right now but when sanded flush should produce perfect straight seams. Making good progress. 8)

Sweet! Looks like satisfying work. Except the tape work looks tedious.

Moving right along. This is the same sway I did my caulk lines, and it works pretty well and looks good.

That looks great! Another poster mentioned a youtube series you're doing, about your build? You should put your link in your signature so curious folks like myself can find it and watch. :)
