Looks beautiful!

What was that first layer of yellowish stuff in the mold on the first day? Was that just gel coat, or also a thin layer of glass for surface finish?

Animalhouse,

Awesome thread and thanks for sharing. Quick question in Post 99 there looks to be a canopied cat in the back ground. Is that the new Class 1 boat I have heard about?

Here are some shots of the hull and deck happy as one unit. The hull & deck have been glassed from the inside and outside, and the putty has been applied.

My son's performance shop just sold a 47' 2004 GTX and it is a beautiful, fast boat. I hated to see it go, but business comes first!
Here it is in action on the Lake of the Ozarks...
