    Pulled it out from the cover to see the color in the sun light an it’s perfect, also picked a small spot to hit with 220 an a quick 30seconds with the buffer. Can’t wait to get it all buffed

    Looking good! This is getting into the fun part, when sanding glass is over, paint goes down and the vision starts to emerge.

    Got the boat back on trailer an back under the tent an was able to Started prepping out the bottom.
    Sanded entire bottom with 80grit an line filed the flat areas on the chimes,
    just for the fun of it put my straight bar on the hull to check how flat it was, an I couldn’t believe how close this thing is to perfect with in a 1/8” or less on all the flat areas.

    good work. You will be proud when you are done! And you will itch a lot less too!!


    actually haven't put any thought to doing an of a barrier coat may reconsider that before we spray gel.

    yes the original gunnels had a taper to them i couldn’t get all the way out, now that the transom cap is on an have that elevation I plan is to layer 2oz an 32or woven as bulk to build those areas up an straighten them once flipped back over!

    Rolled the hull today! Bottom looks great minimal wrk to have it ready for paint.!! Have the video posted to the mako boat owners/mako boat owners club page on Facebook if anyone’s on there. The roll went smooth was deff sweating that part of 0 creaks or cracks all my glass work is solid,
    plan is to have place on 1 block high tomorrow an finish the prep work and get the canopy set up as a paint booth, put some Astro turn down so we’re not kicking up any dust.
    my goal is to have it painted with in the next 2 weeks if weather and work allows

    New to the site (2 months) right after I acquired a 1977 25’. Very impressive work you’re doing. Helpful to see how these old girls were put together. Gonna run her around North of Boston for the season but really want to close up transom possible next winter. Also plan to add a Tee top. Keep up the craftsmanship.

ID:	550554 Just got in from laying up some glass on transom fish box..
    all an all went fairly smooth, was able to get 99% of the air bubbles out corners were able to roll out very nice. Went back an forth on lay up ended up doing 2 layers of 2oz from top of bracket to about 6” above the floor in 1 box pieace. Have a few area I’ll need to add some cosmetic glass to build up to meet the gunnel width and then build the gunnel up with glass for a few ft. Happy with the way it looks, will still do some shapeing and hit with line file.... no more waitin an procrastinating time to roll the hull an prep for paint
