There still some finishing up to be done in the bilge area there. Im going to make it smoother but it wont be as smooth behind the engines obviously as it is in the area that shows. Also where the bilge pump sits I did not core so it will be lower than the rest of the engine compartment so water will shed there and hopefully only be in that area.

Thanks Jeff. Urethane primer going on the deck. Sand this and paint is next. Handy Dandy little bilge pump came in. It will sit in the little valley in the rear of the bilge. Should keep sloshing bilge water to a minimum...

The quality and amount of work going into this rebuild is phenomenal!
The result will be far superior to when it was new!
It's a very inspirational thread thank you!

Thanks, im happy with how the gunnels and walkway turned out. They were extremely wavy. Few places to block out, but overall close...
