Update for today - The first two layers of fiberglass are complete on the primary stringers. I can't wait until this project is over.

Back @ Tim, yeah I hang around a wood boat forum and a lot of them use those ratchet type guns. They were saying that you can get MT types somewhere, but you could just as easily use an old one. Fill it, throw it in the gun, and you're off, then touch it up with the spoon. They say that vinegar is the best thing for clean up.

Smile New pylon!!

I picked up my new pylon today from the machine shop. Awesome. Just like new, classic style, brushed aluminum. Cannot wait to tie a rope to it.

At work, we're working with a fiberglass-based vehicle and one of the guys just found this:

Pre-filled epoxy in a tube - this would have been sweet for the fillets I just finished.

Not sure who's still subscribed to my thread, but as soon as the kids got back in school, Cub Scouts, school sports and some work travel have halted all of my efforts to get "Old Blue" in the water for 2012. She's not going to see any water this year, but I now have the entire winter (in a heated garage) to get her running for 2013.

Since the last pic, the stringers are completely glassed and the pylon support is installed. I've put all the running gear (skegs, rudder, etc) back into the hull.

I might as well clean up the engine before putting it back in and I'll be wet sanding the exterior to get the gel coat smooth and shiny. I am considering painting the hull - I'll be back for more thoughts on this in a few months.

These jobs do have a way of taking more time than one would expect, but oh so nice once done and on the water. .
Keep plugging away........
