Rounded out the week with finishing off the aft cockpit polishing, the nonskid then beginning of masking up the starboard side window to shoot black next week.

It must have been awfully satisfying pulling the tape up from around those non-skid patches. I'm getting a bit of a chubby just thinking about it.

You must have used a lot of plastic sheeting. LOL

When your painting is all done (hurry up), you will tackle the interior??

By next boating season you should be all done and ready for the splash, when the ice goes out.

Hey Matt - Details baby... details!

I don't recall, you probably mentioned, what is the material and its thickness you are using for windshield?

Cheers!
