    Work continues first two stringers are made and coated with CPES yesterday I epoxied them in . Also I found the backing for the rudder was totally rotted away. So far every piece of wood in this boat is rotted and needs replacement.

    Do you have something to use to find what degree of angle to cut?

    Just scribe and test fit a hundred times . I get them to fit within 1/8'' or less then epoxy them to the hull

    Somehow I had a feeling you were going to say that.

    New deck is fitted had to use 3/4'' 5/8 '' is nowhere to be found . 140.00 per sheet Lets Go Brandon. Test fit the upper hull before glassing in the floor . Fit is good but top cap will need to come back off to finish the floor. Got carpet going with navy blue instead of the black that was there should be ready for interior next week.

    Dragged it back into the basement workshop took the cap back off to finish the glass on the floor and install the foot well . I had to put the cap back on because the floor was so hacked and rotted I couldn't get patterns and locations were lost. Floor is in and glassed in. Looking good for the end of the month . Retirement is a good thing.
