Thanks Mrs Razor. Mrs wbeaton has been patiently waiting for two years to get a ride in this one. I’m afraid she’ll have to wait another year, though.

I don't know... it looks pretty good to me. The before and after of the head bulkhead are pretty dramatic.

Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks, guys. It is a lot of work. I have about five days labour spent on the interior so far. I used Gluvit on a tin boat about 10 years ago and it’s still holding up. It’s meant for sealing aluminium boats.

I'm impressed. That's a lot of hard labor right there.
Let us know how the Gluvit works. I have had minimal success with it on fiberglass so I am interested to see how it performs.

Making some progress on the Cruisemaster this summer. The interior is now stripped of paint. I’m ready to Gluvit the seams and start reassembling the interior plywood. The side windows and flybridge window still need another day of paint stripping. It doesn’t look like much, but I probably have five days tied up on the interior alone and I am only now at a starting point.

Before...
