    That is awesome! The fact that you designed this yourself and are able to make it happen is very impressive. High five.

    Hey Guys,

    Been a busy few weeks. Had a few boats come into the yard that required our attention. Had to get our work space organized and catch up on some business priorities. So I apologize for the delay.

    So here are some photos of our progress thus far.

    So there you have it! Inside is faired and ready for gel coat + webbing. Outside is laminted and ready for fairing compound/primer. Were hoping to get the rest of it finished up by the end of this week and have the windows cut. I will keep this updated more often this week. So stay tuned.

    Update!

    Our first fairing/primer coat went on today. Getting ready to sand it tomorrow, another coat and then one last pass with the blocks. Cutting windows out by Friday this week and then gel coat.

    It's interesting...I looked through most of the photos I have posted on this thread and most do not really show true scale. From a personal point of view the boat has definitely opened up quite a bit. Its hard to tell the actual size from the pictures I have posted thus far. I will try and get a more transom to bow profile shot tomorrow...that might help. Granted it is a 17ft skiff, there is quite a bit of room back there now.
