    Actually, the turtle back is a vacuum formed part. Styrene, I think.

    Well, I'm finally done and it was fun, sorta. I don't think I will do another as it takes up to much time. I can't be happy dragging things out and sometimes the quality of your work suffers from it. Enjoy the photos, guys and thank everyone for the compliments.

    You made a wise choice. I had a problem with the glassing on the deck and had to remove it and I haven't tried it again yet. I wish I had practiced on something other than my Cobra.

    Yeah I thought about fiberglass in but with all the hours that I spent on the hall I didn’t wanna take a chance and messed things up with fiberglass in which I know very little about

    From what I'm seeing you have done a great job. If I could do a do-over I would not have started using fibber glass material to cover the hull. I think your way is better and easier to do.

    No Hand stitching. I cut the material and had a friend that has a sewing machine do the sewing. I was very happy in the way it turned out. As for the gold painting it's the same paint I used on the fin. Both the seat are held in place by screws. I wanted to do the side walls the same way, but there's not enough room. The only thing that's holding up the completion is the glassing of the hull.
