Nice work so far. Nice hull and very clean work. I wish I were that patient.

Going to go ahead and add several layer's of glass to the core and try it again.
Project is on hold at the moment as I am in the middle of replacing the cab on my 78 Chevy truck as my Dodge is having issues now and I need a better truck. Doing a new wiring harness from painless performance as well as a new steering column and a digital dash. Will be swapping out the straight 6 for an LS v8 next year sometime. After we get moved.
Did I mention that we have to move? Lol.
Not sure when the boat will get finished but it will get finished 😊.

Thanks. There's no shortage of places I could have done better. 🤣

I suggest getting the Marinco twist-lock type or similar. I had nothing but trouble with the regular plug-in type.

I understand that for sure. I'll never get mine done if I keep second-guessing myself. Mine won't be that pretty, but I want it functional and a little different than a stock layout.

That's what it already has for a plug. I just need the matching receptacle for it.

Working on my 79 Chevy C10 at the moment. Once that's done I will be back to the boat.

I agree the truck is cool. I just don't see too many long beds around anymore.

Really need it done now. Just got the paperwork signed at the bank and picked up the keys to my 2012 Coachmen fifth wheel. Will be home sweet home for the foreseeable future.
One of the contractors we pour a lot of mud with is renting me a spot at one of his properties out in the country. It's closer to everything but still not in town. Should be moving the fifth wheel out there in the next few days.

Got the trailer moved. Then found the problems.
Had to replace the floors in both slides. Still need to button up the last few things on that. Need to install the new water heater I just got. Waiting for the door and hardware to arrive Tuesday. Still need to level it up. Need to replace the black water discharge valve. Need to get a portable tank or a septic system put in out here soon. Can't get to my shop yet as it's to soft and hast no driveway. Just grass. So will be a little bit before I get back on the boat. Grrrrr.
