Looks good John

Once it gets covered with veneer,it's even more exciting than when the frames started looking like a boat!!!

Fantastic John.

Did you decide to staples to hold the veneer strakes while they cure? I know you were looking at options.

I am using the t-50 staples and removing them after the epoxy cures. They are an 18 gauge staple which makes them easy to remove. I tried 20 gauge staples but they had a tendency to break and were dificult to remove. After rough sanding i wet the wood with water and most of the staple holes swell together. I am pleased so far but I still need to see how they look after the glass.

I am on boat building hiatus for about a week. Its killing me. I have about 3/4 of the mahogany on the sides and was hoping to finish the mahogany before this week. the city is having their annual inspection of the hangars this week and boats are not an approved item to have in the hangar so out it went until the inspections are over.

back to boat building in full force. It feels great. I broke the last piece of mahogany for the sides and I epoxied the wrong side of one of the laminations. Life is good.

hey, you volunteered for someone else. Get your rump on a plane and get up here to help me as well. :x

Yeah, I know, you are retired now and can sit on your haunches and pock fun at the rest of us in toil and torment. What a friend you are?

I am posting pics and lots of them on the blog. And now you will get less until the unveiling. I cannot take pics and caulk at the same time. Tried that last night and had to clean up the camera and phone (cuz I was interrupted in mid-stride by a friend). So, see what you did!! :lol:

You wouldn't need any help if you would manage your time better, less time posting and blogging and more time on building. :P :oops: :lol:

Most surely, but gotta give you a little nitro with your air too. YOU guys are on a roll and your blog has been a great tutorial for anyone coming along new to follow! Stuff like that saves others some time with the pondering portion of the builds.

Ahh the highjackers have arrived. Where would we be without the levity? The Monte Carlo will be at the Gathering, finished or not. Well, most likely not. At least it will be turned over by then.

Well, you can have the engine in and we can take it for a romp sitting on milk baskets. Looking forward to seeing all again.
