I got the handles on the back and one more coat of varnish on all the britework.  The boat fits on the trailer nicely.   I didn't do seats yet because there are so many kinds out there I just might wait until someone wants this boat and has their own ideas about seats.

99% done

Got the cleats on.  One big one on the bow deck and two smaller ones aft.  Got the floorboards in and painted.  I put another coat of fiberglass on the transom.  Figured that area need more reinforcing.  What's left are the two hand holds on the transom and the seats.  Tomorrows work.  It's hot outside!

Bottom done

I finished up the bottom. Sanded the glass on the skeg and final coated the bottom.  The grey panels in  the background are the bottom side of the floor.  I found all the hardware for the boat.  I got lifting handles and an eye bolt from Home Depot.  I got 3 cleats from West Marine.  They were just the ones I was looking for.  Two for the back and one mid bow.   I got seats and seat supports from walmart (of all places)  I'll put everything together tomorrow and put her up for sale.

Finally got some wood for the floor.  Regular B-C plywood.  I'll paint both sides and that's that.  No need for any glass or resin.  The floor is a convenience factor and not structural.  Both sides are almost the same!  Nice wood.  Maby I should stain it!

I finally got the boat turned over and applied the skeg.  I used screws as clamps.  I'll remove them and put a strip of glass down the middle.   The skeg is 8 feet long and 1 1/2 inches deep.

Almost done

I got stain on the rails and one coat of resin.  I have the floor, seats, keel,  and hardware left to finish the boat.

I got the inner coamings fitted to the boat.  No gluing today as it's 98 degrees outside...
