              Looks great. Did you remove the in floor livewell? Saw.it earlier in the pictures and not in the last. I am contemplating transom rebuild this January time frame. I removed the boxes already but left the side open. Did you foam behind the sides again? How are you draining the deck. Keep up the great work

                thanks,yes i did remove the livewell,I will eventually foam the gunnells after i make access and drainage for rod holders and if you zoom in on my deck you will see reliefs in the corners at transom they will get 1" drains. Thanks for the positive reinforcement!!!

              It's looking Really Good.
              You are getting to the short rows in the field, as we say in the country.

              Question ;
              is the epoxy primer, so you can gel coat later.
              Are you opting to spray, or roll everything.
              again, it looks good.

                Thanks Lectro, im dreaming of being in the water by end of september but looking more and more like a dream. That being said i am getting close
                The nice thing about epoxy primer is you can fair over top of it after sanding,its also a filling primer and i know i have to fill a couple spots
                I will be spraying with 2 part urethane and going to experiment with making a non skid by adding silica to the 2 part urethane and rolling it

              I was unsure of the epoxy primer, as in was it a primer to go over epoxy to be able to accept Gel.
              or was it an actual primer that was epoxy. -2 different things.
              And I do understand poly doesn't like going over epoxy.
              Polyurethane is a 3rd option. (sorry for the goofy question)

              I too am finding out that a "schedule" on a boat is like a schedule for a job site.
              Wad the schedule up and throw it in the trash.
              "To Me" it's more important to get the job done right and with quality, rather than Just Done and on time.(or kinda 1/2 @$$ed)
              Things just never seem to go as planned. I have had so many set backs myself. (Life really throws it's punches)
              You'll get there, Don't sweat it.

              I "Think" I will miss the whole working on the boat thing. when I'm done. "bitter sweet"
