Just a quick update on the progress.
The second layer of 1/2" ply has been glued and nailed on. If anyone
is tempting this boat, I would recommend using a flush bit router on
the first layer prior to applying the second. then the second layer
could be routed smooth with the sides. Oh well...
Went to move the boat and discovered that it is going to take a case
of beer and a few friends to get it out of the garage before the snow
flies. It weighs around 600-700lbs right now.
Also switched from WEST to Systems three due to price and ease of
mixing. I can mix a few batches up in small doses in the time it
takes to pump the cans.

- The system 3 is faster (handy when glueing up large surfaces such as a
double bottom) due to the fact that it is like pouring a glass of milk
from the milk jug as opposed to pumping mustard on to your hotdog.
The 2:1 mix is easy to measure in disposable graduated cups that I
purchased along with the resin. In addition, the opaque jugs show me
how much I have left.

small garage does not make it very photogenic.
