    That will be ALOT of sanding!! Thought about doing that to my stringers but took the easy way out. Carpet. It'll be worth it, especially in that boat!

    Default prestec

    I like the idea of Prestec or similar clear product over grey or solid color. Just my opinion. Looks like a nice project that is going to be even nicer when it is completed.

    Actually there were 2 life jackets from I think day one that were behind the bulkhead that got cut into when we started cutting, one on each side so now there wont be any hidden articles plus 10 pounds of sand and easy to get the water out, my old 82 Daytona had a huge bag of foam peanuts and it was so wet and moldy just nasty had to be factory no way you could of got them in there this one turned out good plus now you can store a canopy on the side no problem and looks more up to date

    Gunnel bulkheads fab up and ready for install that took a bit for a proper fit and correct clearance not to touch the fiberglass of the boat needs to have clearance or you'll have crazy stress cracks ,We had to cut out the old ones out to get the gas tank out and I have to say they were not installed very well to say the least Glass was poor quality we really just pulled them out and a little grid job . It's done right now ,,,I kept the template so anyone else needs it ask,,,,
