A few photos from this week. I was not sure if a 1/8 inch dip mattered on the chine so is used a piece of 2 inch steel tube and fared in super flat. Super happy after first coat of graphite. All that faring payed off.

Looks awesome!  And no ... go take a look at big water sometime and then ask yourself if a 1/8" variation in a chine flat matters, LOL... Just do the best you can and then go forth an conquer!  Your boat's turning out great!

Pulled her into the sunshine for the first time today. Going to let all that expoy harden in the sun for a couple days then flip on Sunday or Monday. She is heavy.

The big day. Tractor, ropes and good wife. Flipped and tucked back in bed. I will put it on the cradles tomorrow. I need a nap 😴

WTG! Big step towards an awesome boat. That curved transom looks great, can't wait to see how you finish that thing.

 Been up in Seattle cruising the San Juan islands so progress this month wasnt much. Got back and am working on the back of the boat. Trying to fit a curved back wall to a straight boat. Lots of head scratching. Will post pics when Im done scratching.

Interesting, so you are installing the rear bulkhead now? I am thinking to leave mine off until I have done a lot of the interior work so that it's easier to get in and out. Any particular reason you are installing it now or just the next logical thing to tackle?

Yea I get your point. It is something that I feel I need to do. It seems like the natural progression. I will have a door in it, so that should make getting in a little easier. Your correct, it could be put off until the end.
