    Trimmed off all the excess glass and lightly sanded everything to knock off the stingers, did a dry prefit and then mixed up some epoxy with cabosil to make a thick paste. Coated the edges and set it in place. Tomorrow I will make a 6” wide double bevel at the joint and glass in some strips to make the connection.

    Your work is impressive.

    Did you replace the four livewell and deck scuppers in the splashwell?

    Haven’t got to that yet, the motorwell will now become a place to bleed fish before going on ice

    Just a bunch of boring stuff going on now. We added another rigging tube down the starboard side just for the engine cables, harness and hydraulic steering lines. All new marine wires running down the port side, washdown pump mounted in the center storage area to keep it dry...

    Back to the fun stuff...cut out foam pieces for the front and sides along with bracing up the templates. Attached the foam to the frame by back screwing into the foam with short drywall screws, then took the sander to bevel the front edge of the side pieces so the front pieces will fit tight since the front is not flat. Ended up lowering the window openings 3” to give a better view point from the helm. Tomorrow I will secure the front panels and round over the corners and hopefully get some glass laid up. The house is upside down in some pictures and on its rear in others... forward facing pilothouse

    Rounded the corners and filled in some voids with cabosil. Laid up a layer of mat then some 1708 followed by another layer of mat. Will glass the front and other side tomorrow

    Coming along nice. Looks like you do good work. Trying to decide if I have room in my life for a project boat to do something similar.

    Back to the Cabo after pulling the power train out of my Skipjack... removed the inner framing and prepping to glass the inside now. I will run a bead of cabosil to create a radius in the inside corners, this will make glassing a lot easier.

    So you build the house out of foam then glass over? Looks sweet. can you pull a mold? I bet you could sell these.
