Very nice, keep up the good work. I am finishing up odds and ends on the "Knot Sure" project. (some kind of Glastron clone best we can figure.) Cant wait to splash her and get a shakedown run in. Bet you are feeling the same with summer right around the corner.

Yep, the hip pockets, or whatever you have available, are great for subs.

It?s been a couple weeks. Progress is slow.
First order of business with the boat hanging upside down what is the pour form in the Gunwhale area, I managed to get 3 cubic feet in there.
Unfortunately, all the wood that the vinyl was stapled to was rotten and part of the bottom of the dash so I had to fix that first




Then I made some cardboard forms to help hold the foam down a little bit


It?s so easy to work on it. This way I decided I should put all the wiring in.






The piece of corrugated tubing that I zip tied in there to run the wiring through got pushed up by the foam. If I did it again, I think I would epoxy it or glass it, so it wouldn?t move.

Finally made a little more progress. Got some gelcoat on some of the bad spots on the bottom, I?m going to pick up some thing that?s a little closer to the color of the paint and get one or two coats of that over the top of it hopefully tonight, I only got three weeks to get this thing on the water

Disclaimer, this is not really the right way to fix the bottom of the hull, but instead a stopgap measure to keep the raw fiberglass covered up until I get a chance to do a complete paint job.
Sanded the dark gray and applied the light gray all the way down the keel, and patched a couple other spots.



Being satisfied with the results, the boat is now upside, right.

Shawn was kind enough to come over and help on Tuesday and Wednesday, transom is now painted.

Well, he was working on that project to give me the opportunity to get the fuel tank installed new filling, vent lines, controls, windshield bars and trim installed.
We will be in Rathbun in two weeks

Looks great, can't wait to see it in person.    Good idea using cardboard to form the pour foam.    I've used a DWV thin wall PVC pipe for wiring, it remained straight after the pour foam, I just used a couple dabs of pl 400 to hold it in place.    Time is running out, will the stereo be installed for Rathbun?    Your enclosures look solid, would luv the hear it rocking!

The only thing left to do to get the stereo working to bolt the subwoofer in.
