Topsides all primed - a bit of light sanding with 220 grit tomorrow then the wait...

I might flip and do the outside first, then flip again to do the inside (I suppose I shouldn't get used to the ease of flipping since the next project will just get a single flip!).

Nixed the flip - it is getting heavy! Taped for painting the sides:

Sides painted, taped and ready to go for the inside painting:

I got one coat on today, another tomorrow. Then assorted hardware gets bolted on...

Sort of launch today - the outboard had some issues at mid- to full throttle so a couple of short loops at about 1/2 speed then back to shore was it.

Looks good! You seemed pretty steady after you got on your feet. :wink:

What are those black blocks (I assume some sort of weight) holding the internal frame components in place?

Thanks!
