Tried that too. No go. The only thing they would accept was the direct bank transfer. Oh well, done now. Onto other things.

My shop helper and I worked on my 'lean-to' so I could get all the offcuts and panels out of the shed. We're going to need all the room we can get in the shed for the flip.





Date for the flip is the 30th. of this month. It's all I can think about now! Still got a load of work to do.

Standby....

Started to seal up the fairing compound. When I went to the shed this morning I had no idea what I was actually gonna do so this is what happened. The first coat of tinted epoxy going on the sides & transom.

Today I went over the area I coated with epoxy yesterday. I first took the shiny stuff off with the RO then hit it with the Flexicats. Both 80 grit.



You can see the big shiny spot running down the hull. That's a low area. You can't see it and you couldn't feel it. I'm glad I did it this way. I now know more of what I'm up against. Overall I'm very happy with the way it's turning out. I may actually get a decent looking hull after all (if I don't screw it up).

Managed to get some epoxy on the bulwarks yesterday morning before the heavens opened up. The shed roof leaks so I was getting pee'd on. The storm blew over and I got back out in the afternoon to get the port side & transom coated. This morning I got all the way around the boat with another coat.

I got an early start, 07:00 this morning. I knew I was in for a long day.



The plan was to get one complete coat on the keel & bottom panels before it got too hot. I didn't make it. By noon I was wasted. Only made it about 2/3's of the way around.



Took me almost 2 hours just to wipe the keel & bottom down before I started. This is one freakin' big boat!

So technically the hull is now waterproof!

That bald spot on the stbd side got coated this morning and I worked my way around the bottom panels so they got their second coat. I'll go out this evening when it's a little cooler and hit the stbd side bottom again and try to get a second coat on the keel from the step ladder with an extension handle.



Been a tough slog without my shop helper. Nobody said this was gonna be easy. Just an overwhelming amount of real estate that's gotta be covered. I have to say I am more than pleased with the way it's turning out.

Thanks for looking in Dimer. Appreciate the positive feedback. Helps with keeping the enthusiasm up!

Sanding off the shiny stuff. Didn't make a sanding movie. I know you're all disappointed!



Filling in a few low spots.



Goin' for a boat ride! They yacht is rigged & ready. I'm worried the Jeep won't be able to pull it!

Sanding is one of the most exciting parts of the process, gives you plenty of time to think

Until you realize you just sanded a valley into the side of your hull.

Sanding does provide too much time to think. Waaaaaaaay tooooooooo much time to think! The more I think the less I know what I'm doing!

Warmest & most humid day of the summer so far. It was 80 F and wicked humid this morning when I got to the shed. So humid the sanded epoxy wouldn't even turn to dust. It just balled up and stuck to the sand paper!

Kept at it though! I have a big pedestal fan that I keep blowing up my butt to keep me cool! Started working my way down the port side from the bow to stern. Tough slogging though.




I should get one side done today and maybe get the chine sanded neatly too. I have to do that by hand so I don't sand it all off.
