Popped down this afternoon and dry fitted a porthole. These will look sexy against the black hull. I also sanded, routered and fibreglassed the joining surfaces off the porthole opening I epoxy glued yesterday. Next week I'll sand it and begin the fairing process one last time on this side.

Hey Matt,

We are at day 148 of this cruise of the inside passage in Canada. Have just about crossed off everything on the bucket list. Didn't catch any Halibut, but did get a big Skate. Freezer is full of Salmon, cod and crab. We even saw a Spirit Bear! As well as lots of whales. Still have another month or so before we get back to Portland for the winter.

Anyway, your making great progress on the boat and hope to follow you a bit more now that we have pretty good wifi. Keep plugging away bud, won't be long before its in the water and enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Cheers!

How can that be? You always seem to have lots and are truly a master at applying it and probably more importantly sanding it. I never think of it but after seeing all you've done I'll probably use it in the future because I'll think of it.
It probably is'nt very flexable. Are you concerned about that? Can't think of anybody better qualified to fix cracks than you though. I suppose it's like "Bondo" here in the states and it's amazing stuff.
