I drilled the transom drain hole and likewise a water flow hole in the dog box divider. I bought a 1”x3” brass tube and cut it in half. I also drilled the holes for a tow/tiedown hook in the bow. I will be using 5200 Sealant on all these parts. I stitched the bow and sides on tonight. Like everything it took longer than I planned. I will start gluing the insides tomorrow and trim up the overhangs and hopefully have it glassed up by the weekend. I had to modify the shape of the pods at the back. I’m using scraps to make them and didn’t quite have large enough pieces. I could cheat and use another sheet of ply but I want to keep it at 3 sheets. The new shape is similar to what beavertail sells to bolt on aluminum boats anyway.
