You must have been itchy working in sandals and no shirt.

Sir great job and your determination is unrivaled. Your 42 seems to be taking shape. I'm sure your arms are also after all that sanding. I've followed your post on the 42

F the imron dude... go awlgrip! That paint is harder and has more body than imron. My old mans 40' sailboat hit a big wooden dock at like 10knots. The boat climbed tbe dock and slid back down it. Wiped the creasode off ig from the dock and there wasnt a scratch. Plus when repairing an area you can rub it and do an amazing end with imron not a chance of making a spot blend look good...

What about filling in a hull step. I've seen a race boat from 1990's pictures and the hull is stepped. But that same boat now does not have a step. Like some one has filled it in. Why and how?

If I remember correctly steps were not cut into the hull. I think material was added from bow to stern and a step created. But I am known to be wrong every time.
