It's almost time to make her really shine. Hatch lips are installed and the boat is ready for varnish. Just need to give the epoxy time to cure a bit. It won't be long and I will give her the maiden voyage. I am getting pretty excited about paddling this boat.

Which one should I use for the hatch straps????? I have red, blue and black bungee cord so I can make which ever one work.

Probably Tuesday I'll give her a light sanding to rough up the epoxy a little and spray the first coat of varnish on.

Wouldn't mind it for myself.
