Since I will be painting the hull anyway it won't matter what color gelcoat I get, right? Something light that will show pencil or Sharpie marks that will later be engraved. I will also ask about the PVA spray at the marine shop when I go.
is currently in a friend's hands. He has all sorts of nifty tools like lathes and jigsaws and what-not. He has volunteered to make a stand or cradle that will hold the hull level and secure for detailing. So I will hold off getting the gelcoat etc until he gives me the word that the cradle is near completion.
In the meantime I will be scratchbuilding the wheelhouse. Maybe a some other things too. But I will try not to get too carried away. Just my luck there will be some crucial measurement that I will be completely sure of that will turn out to be completely wron
g. So I will try not to get too carried away until I have the hull back home.
