Few updates for those interested. It's pretty much been non stop since my last update. Most of the work has been mechanical, wiring, plumbing and fab work. Since the boat is really a one off every piece has to be custom made. This type of work can take hours to days, from the design, lay out and fabrication. Every finishing touch must be perfect even if it will never be seen again. I guess that's why it's taken almost 4 years to get to this point.
The hull sides are easy, take your time and double check the pattern on the carpet. Use good industrial glue. The 3m 77 works good but breaks down over a few years. I purchased the glue from the same place I bought the carpet. (Keystone brothers). Glue both the hull and carpet. On the flat surfaces make a pattern and cut them 1/2 larger. Test fit the carpet, tape the edges of the carpet your gluing up too so you don't get overspray on them. I also use a piece of cardboard to block overspray. Buy a big pack of razor blades and a good holder. A sharp knife is important. I used a thicker straight edge to cut back the excess and the seems lined up really nice. Buy a little extra and practice. The carpet is cheap. I think I pain $10 a yard. Any other questions shoot me a PM. Joe
