Doesn't look like much but peeling the headliner back, prepping the deck and bulkheads, then tabbing 16 6x24 pieces of fiberglass in place is a fair amount of work. Still got a few more pieces to lay in place. Good motivation is remembering crossing the Gulf Stream in the 30 scarab and having all kinds of screws back out because of the hammering the deck and hull takes. This boat is going to be sturdy.

Also spent some time cutting, bending, and tacking some radar arch pieces in place.

Fixed up my nifty teak door sill. Also got the arch tacked together with the outer skin on it and fitting it to the boat now. When you dont have a pipe bender you have to use a frame rack, a smoke wrench and a little ingenuity.

very nice Heath ! it coming there !!! Time consuming doing custom stuff like that, even more when you dont have the perfect tool to do it, or life insurance when the pipe slides off the chain hook !!!

keep it up ! Nice tread to follow !
