Put a KeelShield on it to tie it all gogether.


Really though, I guess I'm missing it...why don't you just paint the red stripe around it? What are your options?

well it just that i have the keel tapered into the chin theres no problem with doing a rap around on it but bowtie (Scott) is the painter i just like building them and having a hard time with painting it.

esxofly ya i could build the boat in a weekend but i would have put 2 late nights in to it to do it. what has been taking all the time is getting finshed for painting

The paint job looks good scott. I doubt I could have done better great choice of colors and location. We won't be able to miss you on the water.

Well either way, it does look good. It's cool you can build them like that. Is it a kit, or do you buy the plans and then build it with your own materials?

Well you could put one of these up there, then they'll see ya at a distance Building Light House Art Urban design
Or something like this if you have the time, that would really be awesome Sky Bird Nature Azure Sleeve
but either way, it really looks cool, way to go.

esoxfly i found the plans for this one in a book my mom and dad had a long time ago. i have built it this size and increased it up to 16' out on the west coast. then built 2 after that were V Hauls and found the plans some where else. now i'm in trouble i found plans for 24' er's and need room to build them fun fun
