The only pour foam in the boat was next to the motor about 4" thick and in the hip pockets.  The rest was all the 2x4 blocks.

Someone at the Glastron plant is still missing their pry bar.

that's funny they left the pry bar
looks kind of strange, almost like they didn't put enough foam in or it didn't expand properly. Those back hips on mine were right full. As well as pour in everywhere else. What year is this?

That is amazing level, nearly superhuman, progress.  At that rate you'll be back on the water this year.  I still have a long way to go, maybe ready next year.

Definitely this year.  The bottom work is going to be the largest hurdle.  Once all the stringers are cut and glassed in place then I'll flip it and start grinding out all the blisters.

 I have a gallon kit of interlux interprotect 2000e, grey, for sale if your interested.  New in original box, I ended up with an extra when I sealed up the bottom of the Timi.  I'd imagine a 23 would need at least 2 gallon kits.

wow! you're going to have yours done before me at this rate!
I would suggest extending the outside stringers into the cuddy as well if you aren't already planning to, Glastron ended the outer ones where it drops down in the cuddy which caused a weak spot the 23's are known to crack at. Easy prevention with a little more wood and glass! I just stepped mine down up front so it was one continuous piece.

I didn't get any pictures today but did manage to finish building the stringers and glass the transom pieces together today.  Later tonight I might get out and install the transom and start bedding the stringers.

Transom is in,  both motor mount stringers are glassed together but still need to be trimmed.  I also got a little antsy staring at the trailer while I was grilling dinner so I  peeled some of the plastadip off one of the rims to see what it would look like.
