ID:	468031Got the transom laminated this morning, hopefully I can get the damn weights off after this sets up... if you look closely you can see the resin oozing out of all the holes.

    Looks good! Here are the finned rollers I'm talking about. Can also be found on Amazon and such.

ID:	468273 Just got done installing my transom, just needs to cure now. I used a layer of 1708 against the transom skin first then put the laminated coosa boards against it. I was debating to just do the 1708 skin tonight, let it cure, then tomorrow rough it up and then put in the coosa but decided to go for broke and do it all in one shot. Saves me the roughing up step, hope it works....

    Made a little progress today, got some 1708 laid up on the hull under the deck and patched some thin spots on the hull. Pulled my clamps from the transom and filled the voids between it and the hull with thickened epoxy. Some roughing up tomorrow then continue laying 1708.Click image for larger version.

    Got some more 1708 down today. Working my way back to the transom. Next I’ll work on the inside of the transom, over lapping it onto the hull, then my last strip of the 1708 can go in locking it all together. Hoping next weekend is core time! If I had a solid weekend to work on this boat without any interruptions I’d be able to make some serious hay, Kids baseball and all that other good stuff trumps it tho.Click image for larger version.

    I need to figure out what I’m going buy for a permanent fuel tank so I can space my knees correctly... looks like I’m gonna have to settle for a 19 gallon in order to fit it under my splashwell. The one I was looking at is 26”x16”x14.25, in will stick out further than I want but I can build a back seat to hide it. The tank I’m describing is a plastic Moeller tank. I think I can get an aluminum tank with the same configuration, what’s better aluminum or plastic? I think aluminum is about $100 more but don’t care about the price if it’s better.

ID:	468704Got the transom and the last section of Hull glassed in tonight. How do you guys avoid air pockets. Im using a finned roller and working them out as much as I can before the resin kicks off but can’t seem to get all of them.... Maybe it is what it is since I’m not a professional shop with all the right tools and tricks...

    a plastic bondo spreader helps, I have just used my hands as well, but you may need a bubble buster roller. You really need to work this thicker glass. Smaller sections of glass are easier to work with just over lap them and you will end up with 2 layers of it in one application. I still have issues with it as well but I am a novice as well.

    I went with the triangle plastic moeller tank, i think this one is 17 or 19 gallons, cant remember now.

    thanks, where did you get the rigging sleeves for the top of your splashwell? I just ordered a RDS 18 gallon aluminum tank, it’s about 13.5”tall so I shouldn’t have to modify the front of my splashwell.

    You're making quick work of this build, good job! I used a small cheap shower squeegee to help layout 1708.

    thanks, it’s going pretty good. I’ve been referencing your build a lot and hoping it turns out as nice. Hoping to get the core in with this extended weekend.

    Eddie Marine, I still have to finish and put on the hose over all my wires. I already reroute the steering hoses so they do not go through these anymore

    I don’t know what’s up with the sideways pics but if someone knows how to get rid of them go for it.
