Hull flipping day for my 17' V-hull skiff FINALLY arrived on Thursday!
After getting her on the dolly I consulted an 81 year old Norwegian boatbuilder I know (my Dad) for assistance with the interior planning. He was a great help in determining the final shear line using a CVG fir batten on the starboard rail.
The original plan was to finish the side panels bright but that didn't work out due to incomplete resin uptake in the 6oz FG fabric .
Here she is out of the garage (much to my wife's elation!).
And here she is flipped and ready to slide on the dolly.
After reading all the controversy about CPES I decided to just coat the interior with 105/206 slighty diluted with acetone to improve the brushflow.
Now all I have to do is install frames, stringers, decks, seats/storage, motor controls, etc......!
