Sorry, I should've put my previous postings here, instead of the builders Forum.

Finished glassing the inside over the weekend.
Tumblehome boats are more difficult, but the results are worth it.
I had a piece of S-glass left from a previous build, about 38"x38" so I thought I would lay it in the inside to beef up the sides, and stiffen the keel. It wet out fine, but is noticeable.

I always seem to get a couple of wrinkles in the bilge area. My theory is excessive resin trying to run down hill. I take a foam brush (dry) and soak up the resin in this area. It works !

Now that I've finished glassing the inside, and it has cured enough to move around, I weighed her.
I have not glassed the flotation chambers , and she weighs in a 40lbs.

With flotation chambers, trim, and varnish, I doubt I can keep her under 50.

Well I finished installing flotation, and trim.
Weighed her yesterday at over 55#.
Heavy but extras like a double layer of 6oz to the waterline, extra layer of 6oz inside around the seat area, flotation chambers, and Ash trim, add up.
