Kenshu,
Where in Newport do you slip your boat? Looks like a beauty .

Russ,
I'm curious to know if you've sealed all surfaces of the pink stuff"? If so, you're aware of the health hazards. Fiberglass fibers become airborne and enter the tightest spaces via convective air movement - naturally occurring between the cold air beneath the shrink wrap, and the interior cabin spaces.

The stuff is pretty nasty, a known carcinogenic and (according to the International Residential Code) is ilegal to remain exposed in living areas.

I suppose, the code only pertains to land residences, but unless completely sealed, it is still dangerous.
