    You can find info on the jig for the boat at www.enviboats.com

    John,

    I'm still leaning toward black for the hull sides and white every else. We'll see how the fairing goes before I decide on final color choice :) If it's perfect, I'll go with a darker color. If I just can't get it to where I want it, it will be lighter colored.

    Gotta say, that's one sharp boat!! No space to build one right now, but maybe some day.

    Hey Jim,

    I worry about those epoxy allergies and have been keeping Benji out of the garage when any wet or uncured epoxy is around. He's also not allowed in there while I am sanding/fairing because I don't want him inhaling any of that dust. Anyway, I've been using the 635 thin epoxy from US Composites http://uscomposites.com/epoxy.html and have been happy with it. The medium hardener seemed like it took forever to kick back in the cooler days, but now it kicks fast in these warmer temperatures. I've been mixing small batches to avoid waste but still have a bunch of 'pucks' that cured in the cup. I plan on bright finishing the false transom with mahogany and will try MAS low viscosity epoxy and 6oz glass from Chesapeake Light Craft for that.

    Work on the boat has slowed drastically for me as work gets busy around the end of a fiscal quarter, but I should get back on the boat soon. I have a LOT of fairing to do on the boat in the coming weeks. A Tyvek suit and fairing board has to be the best weight loss system in the world! After fairing the boat for a few hours, I am completely drenched in sweat.

    Volstandigkeit,

    Thanks for the comments on the boat. Saw your post on Marc's site - are you on the Northern Neck?
