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

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.

Laminated two sheets of 3/4” foam with a camber built in.. not only does this let water run off it also makes it very strong. Tomorrow I will cut the shape of the roof out and start laying glass on the top..

Threw the house up onto the console to make sure it fits, then set the roof on the so I can shape the front of the house to match the camber of the roof. Took some measurements for the rear supports so we can have Pete fabricate them along with adding rocket launchers...
