Getting it done this week. Traced my CSM and glassed my deck in. That was a race working by myself but very happy with how it came out. Cut my scuppers out as well and finished fairing and put the first coat of primer/paint on my console/gunnel cap.

Laying that much glass at one time by yourself you must have looked like a one arm paper hanger :lol:

I was covered in resin that’s for sure. Was brutal alone but got it done and was proud of it. Whole project thus far had been a 95% one man affair. First coat of gray brightside laid up nicely. Going back with 220 grit this afternoon and rolling/tipping second coat.

Just so you know. I LOVE SPARTAN BOATS! Add the fact that she is almost 40 years old and I'm really falling in love with your project.

Thanks Cape Man, I’m beginning to enjoy the process more as things begin to materialize. Got my deck hatches in, as well as my rigging tube. Hanging engine and going on the trailer tomorrow

I know this is a purpose built boat but I keep thinking you are going to have an interesting ride in any sort of weather.
I like it as you will have a ton of working room.
