I'm with you Cracker Larry, glad I've got boys and don't have the headaches of boyfriends of daughters! Although my late father in law was very intimidating!!!

I got the first layer of glass on the outer strakes today. If temp stays low I'll shoot for second layer after lunch.

Here is a picture of first spray rail after I removed the clamps. I should have left it short at the bow so I could overlap it with glass. I'll grind it back a few inches, Dang it. :roll:

Thank Guys, Yes I'm a good bit better. Still being careful with the shoulder, I got a lot of sanding ahead.

I continued work on the outer strakes today. After sanding the fillet on port side and the first layer on starboard this morning. I got the second layer of 6 oz. tape on starboard side and first layer on port. It was a total of 31' of 4" wide tape, I used 9 ounces + 18 cc's of epoxy. I don't know why but the edge of the tape is lifting up and requires sanding between layers. So far working with this tape has been my least favorite thing to work with.

I'm off to pickup a birthday cake and card for Danielle. She will be 18 tomorrow!!! :D :D :D
Where does the time go? I remember carrying her in the hospital to show the new grandparents. It felt like my feet were not touching the floor, It still does, every time I hug her.

Y'all have a Great Weekend.

If you use biaxe tape it would probably lay down better than regular tape.

Eric,

Have had similar problems with the tape in the past. Especially the thicker finished edge. It is helpful sometimes to trim the finished edge off of the tape prior to applying as this often allows the tape to lay down better. Also, occasionally making a slit in the tape will help it to go around curves.

Been admiring ythe progress of your build. Looking good.
