    Don't know if anyone is still watching but...

    Mocked up the spray rail and tumble home guard with some cheap pine before starting with Mahogany. Hope to finish sand the transom and start with the 6oz e-glass on the transom tomorrow. The color should really start to pop on the mahogany once I get the epoxy and glass on.

    Starting to take shape now Rob. Doing an awesome job. Taking on a project like this for the first time, it's impossible to know all the work invovled and how long it's going to take. It's going to look great when it's done.

    Thanks guys. Didn't make as much progress as I wanted to over the holidays, but I did manage to get the mahogany transom glassed with 6oz eglass from Chesapeake Light Craft. The stuff really wets out very clear with MAS epoxy. Still applying finish coats and standing to 320-400 grit, but getting there. A few more coats and it should be glass smooth and clear. Also worked on the tumble home guards and they are now dry fitted on both sides. Now I just need to get the spray rails on and keep a constant 7 degree angle on them from back to front.

    Thanks Jim, I hope to get her flipped over soon and start working on the inside in a few weeks. I spent time shaping the spray rails today now that they are affixed via epoxy. I hope to glass them tomorrow and there's not too much left before the big flip except for work which keeps getting in the way

    Quick progress photo. I've been glassing and fairing the spray rails and the tumblehome guard. Applied high build primer on the rails and guard and took this upside down progress pic to show what she is going to look like once I get her flipped over. Hopefully it won't be long now.
