Almost done, overall sanding after fill coats then 1st coat of varnish, 4 more to follow at 24 hour intervals. Need to make seat and carry handles, install watertight deck plates, and float test.
Then either my buddy will come get it, or I'll carry it up when I go to the Sail Oklahoma event 1st week in Oct.

nice! The amber tint in the epoxy really makes the wood grain pop.
