Got the floor decking cut out yesterday evening. Had to cut the grass and go to the dump so not much done on the boat yesterday. Plan to get the foam in and the floor in and painted today. Wish me luck.

Got the hole cut for the deck drain. Letting the fresh paint on the edge dry then I will add a second cote to the entire floor on both sides. Then I plan to use poly sealant in the rivet holes as I install them then paint over the rivets themselves. Doing everything I can to keep this floor from rotting.

Rain forcast rest of this week. Will try to measure and cut out the wood for the rear deck and compartment walls and get them painted so I can make more visable progress this weekend. If I can get some more aluminum channel by then. Will order it tomorrow.

Rain today. Rain forcast till Sunday. Also I ran short of tubing for the livewell so no progress till this weekend I imagine.
However, I got word Yesterday I will be able to start moving into my new shop this weekend. So if all goes well I will be making updates from indoors soon. This will also allow me to expand what I am doing as well as allow multiple boats to be in progress at once so I can work on one while resins ect dry on another one ect.
