    Hi,
    Really taking shape now.

    Well done.

    Martin555.
    If it looks right it probably is.

    Nothing wrong with that, going to look nice once varnished.

    Well, its slow going but I did get half of the forward deck done today. Its not perfect by any means but I am determined to complete it.

    Looks good so far.

    I have been working on my 1955 Cobra since I retired in 2004. I'm at the point on glassing the hull. The bottom is glassed with 2 coats, but I had a problem with deck. I had to remove the fiber from the deck and start over and that's were I stand.

    One thing that I did was cut the shaft hole for the drive line and did the same for rudder hole. This way I wouldn't mess up the fininshed glass work.

    Would like to see more as you progress with the build.

    So far so good JackπŸ‘
    I'd be inclined to replace those two planks where the top layer has frayed though.
    Easier now than later, and you'll regret it later (it'll spoil the show) if you don't do it nowπŸ˜‰
    Very nice subject, only a few originals built in 1955 I believe.
    Cheers, Doug 😎
    BTW: How about transferring this project to the Build Blog section!?πŸ‘

    Please don't make me replace those 2 planks, sir. Mahogany planking will hide my bad mistake. I caused this when trying to level the deck out when sanding got carried away. lol
