I know. I need more pictures. It's late, so maybe tomorrow. To the point. The hull has been flipped, frames and seams are filleted. Now I just need to order some fiberglass tape so I can finish up building the hull and move on to all the fun stuff.

Last Monday I was able to get everything puttied and the bow shaped. Now I just need to smooth over the rest of the seams, and fiberglass them tomorrow. Fun stuff!!

Parts to hull.

Today was the day! I started going from parts to a real boat with my bolger cartopper. So time for pics...

Now I have to attach frame a and fit the bilge panels.

Rapid Cartopper progress

The last time I posted about my progress on the cartopper all I had was some of the pieces drawn out and plywood together. Today was very very productive. I manages to cut out all the frames, the transom, bottom, 1-rudder cheek, 1 half of the rudder, the bilge and side panels. Everything looks like it will go together pretty well. Not too tight or too loose. Tomorrow I hope to get the transom and stem together. Then maybe I can build a framework to support everything so my dad and I can start the assembly process when they come to visit my wife and I next weekend.
