    Pulled off the rub strip - such as it is.
    I really want to find a new solution to that - it is all but useless except perhaps at the very front. But it is a discrete cap over the hull deck join.

    that took a while to pry off successfully - and then fair.

    The white line at the sheer is a routered concave line.
    I had painted it white - cause its a PITA to paint properly. But I'll mask off and paint this time.

    Tidied up the knee for the transom.

    Here's the exhaust outlet stuck in an off-cut from the transom, and the 'damage' needed to get the thing through 70mm of timber. Oversize hole, plus a chunk gouged out to get it through.

    If i go through the side of the hull, it would be far less destructive.

    Plenty of boats have no rubbing strip. Masina had none. But I think they're a good idea. You never know when you're going to need to run against a post etc. I put rubbing strips on Masina. I shaped and glassed solid lengths of PNG rosewood then glued and screwed those to the hull. After painting, I ran narrow D section strips of brass along the middle of each. I think it looks pretty good.

    Its the tumble home, maybe 50% of my boat has tumble home, from forward of the stays to about the back of the cockpit.
    But i do like the way it brings out the sheer line.

    Might get a thin strip of teak, 20mm maybe, and see.

    In my H28 I had a water strainer for the engine raw water intake in the cabin so you could easily see that it was pumping water (or when it had anything in it). It just sat next to the steps so it didn't catch you eye. It did help that the front of the motor was right behind the steps as well.
    Because with the raked transom of the H28 it was a mission to check the exhaust outlet which involved hanging over the transom. Plus most modern race boats have the exhaust out the side of the boat rather than the transom.

    Yeah - i think an outlet somewhere at the starboard quarter, - spiting out into the ocean horizontally, could be quite useful.
    As is, to check that water is pumping, you got to lean out over the stern rail.

    The fitting has a built in curve to conform to the transom, I'd look for a spot on the side that matched that curve.
    A thing might be smoke stains...

    Truth is, i hardly use my motor. Its got 20 hours on it, and half of them were because i had to get a friend back to Jervis Bay from Wolongong at a set time - into the breeze.

    I just realised, since i started this latest work, I've pretty much stayed out of the Bilge (forum Bilge that is)

    I just needed something to keep me off the streets.....
