The BOAT is taking shape

After many months of working on the strakes, they are placed.
Now to fill in the screw holes, sand then cover with epoxy.
Then the boat will be turned over and work begin inside it.

The master boat builder at work.
Each screw was rubbed with wax so it would come out easily.
Meticulous careful work that took much time.
Masking and screwing in place after the epoxy is placed.
The boat fills half of the garage and looks splendid!
Each screw hole that held the strakes needs filling with epoxy.
It's looking finished and soon will be ready for fiberglass and painting.
It's slow going with around 500 holes to fill then sand.

Wow, the boat is looking more and more gorgeous (if boats can look gorgeous) at each update! Allen certainly is a patient man, hats off to him. Thanks for sharing this, Lin.
