Jordan, she's looking nice.
Hey thanks John, good to see you on here. How are things at the shop?
Got some non skid down.
Quick trip to the water to mark water line. Also got the in windows in yesterday.
Nice looking boats especially the one in the back
Believe it or not, that h&h wasnt always that good looking lol. My brother is beyond excited. Enjoy your season Chris.
Dam that thing is scary clean, you need a swivel rod holder up forward and some Blood on that deck !!
Thanks Mud. Agreed, blood and black dog hair coming soon.
Oh yeah, would you please get that painter off your bow hook ?? Ya look like a Tourist with that thing.
The house is looking great! Its always amazing how much the windows pull the whole look together. Did you paint those frames white or were you able to get them from Wynne like that?
What is your plan for the finish on the hull, is what we see how it came out of the mold?
Thanks Seakarma. Yes, the windows came from Wynne painted. Website says the white frames are a powder coat.
My plan is to roll on epifanes 2 part light grey paint. Hoping to get it on there by the end of this week. The finish now is pretty rough, granted I.T is mostly covered in dust in these pictures. This mold has some aging and left some little spider web looking imprints in the gelcoat. They aren’t too deep luckily and sand out nicely. Was originally thinking I would just work the gelcoat on there but I.T would’ve been a lot of work.
That’s a great looking house!
Thanks OB. Got some paint on over the weekend.
That is a sexy boat!!!
Thank you. Rub rail on, getting close now.
Bottom Paint and water line on. Bottom Paint is pettit and water line is Epifanes dark blue # 854
That looks great!
She is a beast! Looks awesome
Got her in and running last night! Felt great. Prop needs some work but saw 31 knots top end. Hand full of things to finish up this week and then getting her down to her home this weekend.
That's a project to be very proud of. Thanks for sharing the build process. Best of luck and tight lines!
Thanks Vin !!
