    Holy Cow! That looks fantastic. Congratulations for a job very well done. Something about a capped boat that just looks sick (IMO). I love the brushwork on the deck too.

    Great job.......john

    blownmantra, on the seam you have to groove it to a V shape, it dosn,t have to be that wide mabe 1/2" to 3/4" . i used "kitty hair" or you could use marglass to fill the groove,block it out, then ran two strips of glass cloth over that.block it out,then i used evercoat and sanded to finish. primed it with some heavy ass industrial primer (forgot the name), used ppg paint, dupont clear. alot of wet sanding and buffing to make it look sweeeet. hope that helps, and thanks for the comp. steve

    Did you lay glass on the inside? I did not when my sleekcraft was done the same way and it cracked in the seam. Hope you do'nt have that problem.
