Thanks!

I semi copied that technique. I had seen someone use a clamp and 1x1 before and added a second clamp.

First round of fairing. I'm using way more epoxy on that then I thought I would! :roll:
First pass at fairing.

Thanks!

Matterhorn White with a black painted rubrail. I'm thinking I might wrap it with a Tarpon scale wrap. I think it look pretty good and will hide my first attempt at painting a boat! :lol: We'll see how the paint job turns out!

Almost have a good enough bottom.
Almost work boat bottom!

I'll order a larger kit of epoxy this time! My wife had projects for the camper that needed some epoxy. :roll: I thought about telling her that this epoxy was reserved for boat building. Since I can type this from the comfort of my couch, you already know I didn't and she is getting our camper outfitted with okume and epoxy. :lol: At least the furniture will last longer than the camper...

Normally, about 3 coats of fairing starts to look decent for me now. 6 is really close to perfect.

I'll probably end up with 4! :lol: I'm not shooting for perfect on the bottom and the top should be a grimy mess from the mudflats and creeks that I plan to attempt to fish.

This is after 3 coats on most of it. I've got some minor low spots and then on to quick fair for the last coat on the outside bottom.

To answer your question, I have young-onset Parkinson's Disease. My neurologist and now a second opinion are concerned that it is progressing as quickly as it is. The latest cocktail is slowing the progression to a manageable level. I've had to limit a lot of activities and I am looking at a semi-forced medical retirement. Hopefully, they will allow me to continue my work at home until the retirement paperwork gets completed.

My wife has been supportive but gets onto me for trying to get as many projects completed as I can at a break-neck speed. My desire to sell the GT23 was to ease her concern but at the same time, I don't want to see it discarded for the trailer. I've got a group of guys that I go to church with that might be willing to assist with it so they can use it as well. IF, if I get to finish it, it will have to have a provision for a lift of some sort and a dockside wheelchair ramp. I've thought about this before and now my current circumstances would make it a necessity for future use for me.
