    The multi-chined deck is such a cool look.

    Philip,
    Now comes the hard part - finishing
    It seems like the more work you put in the more work you will put in. (snowball affect)
    The high quality work you have done so far, cries out for a really nice finish.
    Just don't rush it.

    Roy

    Missed my target date of April 1/ 2018 , but getting close, some light sanding and clear coat to go, everything else is done. So far 168 hours into build, I think it will be 200 hours when finished.

    Looking good. I think I spent 200 hours on my CLC and it's not a multichine.

    Wha? Is that glass on the boat? I thought you were at the painting phase?

    No, not the gray paint. The white cloth.
