Thanks! The lines weeble wobble around a bit...Could have been prevented with a laser level, but it'll be mostly inconspicuous once flipped over.

That’s a really interesting move. I’ve been researching the epoxy/graphite subject and haven’t come across a narrow “keel guard” approach like that. If I recall, you also have full bottom coverage under the paint too, right?

Yeah the whole bottom is covered under the paint, but didn't want an entirely black bottom.

First coat of primer on the console.

My buddy that has helped with flips has been out of pocket, so I convinced my wife to help with the flip. Things got a little hairy about halfway, but we were able to get her back over in one piece.

Onwards and upwards!

Progress has been slow this week.

On the boat, I cut and installed 50% of the sole cleats. Mostly got all the easy ones out of the way before the ones along the Frames B and D that have no real reference for positioning. I made some chase tube supports, just need to get those bonded in place.

Most of the time spent this week was on the console and figuring out where all the holes needed to go. Cut it all out today. I still have the round one on the seat bottom to finish opening up to size.

8557

Left side opening is a fire extinguisher cabinet. Right side is the throttle, the forward seat back is just an access to the inside for electrical connections. Seat bottom is fuel tank access and the back bottom is a hatch to access the fuze block and battery switch.
