Strip: Strip Nikumi Progress *PIC*

Happy New Year everyone,
I spent some time finishing the cockpit recess yesterday and sanded the deck today. Here is a picture of the forward deck all wet with water. I wet it good to raise the grain before the finial sanding.
The Nikumi is a Tom Yost SOF design that I decided to build as a strip build. I built the SOF version and wanted a good winter project so here it is.
I need some warmer weather to get the glass work done, that should be soon.
I hope everyone has a great year in 2011.
