    Well it's Sunday didn't do any glass work today to cold but got every thing ready to go in. This has been a cool project for me and the kid.From cutting every thing out and seeing how little was holding this thing together after past owners patch work was sub par. And seeing how much the hull was flexing. To setting and glassing in the stringers then the bulkhead and dam. seeing how each steep stiffens the hull. And also cutting down on some lbs. at the same time . I know i saved some i just wonder how much . I will say this it will be allot stiffer now cant weight to get her wet and see how she runs just want to say thanks to TRG for his input a big help

    WOW! Great job. I have to be honest, I dont think I would have done that myself. Mostly because of time but shoot that is a lot of work.
