    Technically not boat progress, but these will make using the bottle jacks on the keel a little less sketchy walking the boat off the trailer.

    Making progress on firewall wiring and battery mounting. Made a new tow for the battery tray that doubles as a seat/step.

    Got some good news from an interlux rep. For gelcoat only blisters(not sure this is the right word for what they are anymore), he recommended opening up the cracks and coating with 2000E, then fairing with watertite as needed, followed by 2000E. This is good news as I had previously thought I needed to resin seal before fairing with watertite, and then I'd have to deal with the blush of resin before fairing. The 2000E just needs appropriate dry time and a quick scuff.

    what is the 2000E
    1980 2400 Cuddy I/O, 2017 Cummins 4BT coupled to a Volvo DP-SM with F9 Props, and a 2014 Mercury 15HP Pro-Kicker "LOOSE CHANGE"

    Looks good but I hate to tell you Maple is about the worse wood you can expose to water. Had a Dental Clinic I was building came in one morning and the existing windows were leaking from a bad storm. The bottom of the door casing where it met the floor was VERY swollen.

    A good quality Varnish may keep it sealed.

    Thanks, I’m not too worried about it. The holes are over drilled, it will be sealed with spar oil and then painted with rustoleum topside paint, then sealed with 5200 to the flybridge deck. its leftover from our house countertops I did a few years ago that still look great with only a light oil.
