Thanks folks, not so much speed as perserverance, and a touch of occupational therapy.

Also dosn't help that I'm addicted :roll:

Made a rolling tressle table for this build, for flexibility I added bolt on/off legs with 3 work heights. With double pully block and tackle either end, I can change out as required, or roll the entire assembly in/out the shop.

another observation, doing the goopie work on this will suck up a ton more epoxy and wood flour :roll:
and it's way harder on an old back, but there's no quitting now

To true, also lying on a hard dusty ( I need to clean ) concrete floor removeing wire stitches isn't fun either, then getting up at 2 am to smooth out the keel fillet you did at 8 pm , makes one wander about these addictions :roll:
