Ditto to the other comments. Real sweet.
I do have one question though. Judging from the pics in your first post, you've had this on the water already. Are you worried at all about any separation in the all the numerous seams of your teak/epoxy work from the stress of towing and water force on the hull?

I wonder if cutting out the gunwales is going to make the hull more prone to flexing ?

May not make much different in smooth water.....but chop may be another story ?

thanks...i have had a few issues with the floor. Followed european advice to blend in graphite powder with epoxy for sun protoection. Unfortunately this increases expansion/contraction so the graphite expoxy seams have developed some small cracks. I also had to router out a small seam section to put some flexible caulk in to allow for movement between the engine mount base and the side. Other than that epoxy and teak are two very solid marine grade materials. The bow is perfect and I have had it in 35 deg celsius plus to much cooler with no problems showing....yet! The finish ( ie brightwork ) is all 2k polyurethane which is super durable.....will keep an eye though

I did think about this, but the pieces I glassed in have been built very solidly. The 90 degree bond on the inside was a sandwich with 4 layers of heavy chopstrand so construction is pretty strong. There is less flex when you put pressure on the top of the gunwhales than before. If i notice any flex ill let you know

Damn, nice work - as has been summed up in previous posts!

I refuse to post pictures of my boat from this point forward
