Tom,
Here's the hull with the stringers glassed completely in. I wanted to get the bulkheads in, but I had to hop on Babi for a few hours. Tomorrow the balsa core in the hull will be completed. I'll have pics.

Keith,
What bench are you referring too ? Tom is referring to the cockpit back seat for the cooler.

Balsa core, I can't wait for the pics. How much of the boat is Balsa? How much is the other stuff? (baltek??)

Hey Rick, we're on the same page - the rear underseat bench can be used as a cooler - I like the idea, but don't worry about sending me a plug, I can do that no sweat if I decide to use it that way - right now storage is a premium and we're always packing a cooler at the house anyway.

BTW, I added pop up mushroom cleats fwd of the exisiting cleats - when rafting up with some big boats like we often do, there is no room for lines and fender ropes. I found some awesome SS pop ups and mounted them 4" fwd of the rear cleats, still looking at doing two more on the midship cleats too. Will post a pic when the 5200 dries and I clean 'em up.......
