"Getting Recognizable" on April 7, 2016
HULL FRAMING COMPLETE - on April 8, 2016.
Next I start filling in the voids with water putty.
Going to go in small areas instead of big pours.
Less sanding afterward that way.
Once the hull is smooth I'll give a good heavy paint layer.  Maybe epoxy.
After that, is the molding.
Doesn't seem to be any mold material retailers in Reno.
I can have it shipped in or go to Sacramento or I know a place in SF for it.

Lines look good don't they? P

The hull is pretty recognizable.  Such a fine seaboat. 
Pretty saucy lines for a tanker.

The lower part of the stern needs more shaping and the turn of the bilge needs to be filled, but the lines are pretty well there.  On the road again tomorrow so no more work until I get back Monday.

Vern's just playing around here!
