      Glad to see the progress. you are doing K.A.. work. (cleaned that up a little bit)

      My project has stalled a little, been very rainy and cold in nc.
      I have done some wood prep and indoor epoxy, but will post that later in my project thread.

                    Looking good. You are at the point that taking all the extra time to get it perfect will pay big dividends in the future. Once you get paint down imperfections will be amplified.

                      Your 1000% right on that!! The better the body work now the better it will look finished. Debating long blocking the exterior before gel or block the gel or block both. Plan is to take to 1500 dry then wet sand with 3000 an buff..

                      was able to get the anchor hatch glassed in tonight just got in actually. Put 2 layers of 1.5oz 1708 then a final 1.5oz with adding glass to some low spots.

                              I like the nice easy profile of transom with the fish box.

                              • Joe-
                                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.
