After a year's hiatus I started back to work on my GB and now I have the hull stripped. As I have stated before in posts to this forum, Newbies should build their first boat SIMPLE. I got fancy and wanted to create a design in the hull to rival Joe Greenley's work..BAAAAD idea for a first timer. This would be my second season on the water and I'd be half way thru a gorgeous second boat by now if I'd practiced some humility!! :)
It's all working out now as you can see, though not without great gnashing of teeth.
In this shot I've wetted it down ready to do the final sanding before glass.

I have more pics for those who might be interested
