I did, in response to a post I saw here, attempt to upload them to the gallery before I contacted Reid. I frequently upload photos using methods similar to those used here with no issue.

Reid spent a whole bunch of time on this yesterday and was not able to get the photos loaded. I am hoping Jaysen sees this thread and offers to upload for you. He seems to have a method that always works!!! Jeff

It was the gallery that I was not able to upload. Guess I'll give it another try.

Probably been noted here before but while sanding the inside corners of fillets this morning, I knew I needed a better way. A Dremel tool with flex shaft and one of the 5/8" drum sleeves makes neat and quick work of this job. And the sleeve proved to be long lasting.

Welcome foto, thats a fun boat to build my son and I built one. We just remodeled it for an outboard. Looks like your making good progress.

If you don’t have one I would definitely recommend purchasing a vibe saw it will be your best friend.

Also I found that during assembly small tack welds with thickened epoxy work great then I came back all wet on wet no need for sanding fillets. It’s a very easy process.
