Well after a long wait through some job hassles and winter. I have been to get back to the build and it has been going quit well latley. A little more tweaking and one other coat of epoxy and installing the seats. She will be ready to float she gets inspected tommorrow by the Illinois dnr for the registration process. Here is a few pics of her now.

I have temparily fitted seats still need to do some sanding and put a couple coats of epoxy on a few spots and finish up a few other od and ends. I'm going to paint the outside green. What is the best varnish to use that you could get at menards or lowes for the inside other than minwax?
