The biggest problem will be shipping. I'm in east jesus nowhere SC. Makes for great access to the water but not the happiest drivers. Although a thought ... Should I spring for the topcoat now and get it all in one shipment?

The Mrs is almost as excited for the build as I am. She has her chair all ready, her tea brewed, and her hat brushed. I will have excellent oversight. I've been instructed that NO blood other than my own can be spilt on the finish until AFTER I've sailed her to the sand bar.

So much for my fishing boat.

Temp shop is set up. I'll post pics later.

I do have a question: what is the best barrier between a floor surface and the long sections being butt joined?

Any kind of cheap plastic sheeting. I usually just buy plastic painters drop cloths and cut off what I need. Not that a V12 really has a "long" surface anyway :lol: But plastic under the joints. Glad Wrap will work.

Perfect. I realized I was "out" of 4mil of any size. Should have enough to get all 4 of the panels glued up in one sitting. Might take 19 batches of glue in this heat, but I'll only need the deck for a day.

UPS guy brought me some presents!

Anyone have a recommendation on best plan to get resin and hardener out of bottles? I realized I forgot about that in my planning.

I pour it in cups, very simple/ Some like pumps but I find it cleaner and faster to pour.

I was thinking about that. Clean solo cups. Two funnels. A scale. Store funnels in large ziplock bags and clearly label resin and hardener. Use disposable plastic bowls for mixing.

Seem right?
