I think I saw an imperfection in the paint. You need to look really hard. It would be easier to see if it weren't for that darn mirror finish. :)

Beautiful work.

Thanks guys. Been a long road to ho. the bottom paint is Imron 500. I think they call it that. The side is painted with Imron industrial paint. The industrial is about $35. a gallon cheaper than the hull paint. (Bottom) The only thing with the industrial is it has a tendancy to orange peel . You have to be very careful with the air flow. The top deck will also be Imron industrial. white with a slight blue tint. At Lowes I found some non skid called Shark skin or something like that. Very fine. Actually small tiny plastic beads, kind of like microballoons except a little more course. An 8 oz. bottle costs $4.00 and change. One bottle to a gallon of paint. Mix with the paint and roll it on with a very fine knap roller. (1/4") I have to finish my drains for compartments. Sand and clean up some. Then the hull will be painted. (Deck that is.)Next step I have to build some molds for the lids. Since these are self draining compartment tops.I need to make a lid with a lip that lays over a lip that was formed in the compartments. Almost done. Hope to get all painted by this weekend and start rigging. Won't be long now. Heck its only been 14-15 months. :D

Jim,
When this boat is done you will see it up in your neck of the woods. The Man I am building it for lives in jacksonville. He told me that when I am finished with it he will leave it here for a few weeks to try it out and show it off. What a guy. :D :D

He lives on Apache Ave. don't know how close you are to him. He loves the Amelia island area. He especially likes it when the NE winds blow the water up in tot he grass areas and watch the reds bmping the grass knocking the crabs off. I will fish it with him one day.

Very pretty little boat. I really like the overhang you left on the decks much like a Mitzi I think. Really nice, I think you even talked about it once in one of your other posts about the same subject. Great idea, almost looks like a mold. hmmmmm j/k...

Nice stuff man!
