Iím glassing over and finishing all the fiberglass surfaces, I want to see the structure of the boat not cover it up. Inside the head Iíll finish the surfaces smooth and use a two-part paint system. In the other areas Iím not going to try to smooth things up much more than is shown in the pictures Ė will probably use a high build epoxy primer followed by a satin one-part top coat. The sole will be finished smooth and painted with a two-part paint system with some sort of non-skid.

The mast step was rebuilt using solid fiberglass for the section of sole and the floor beam below the compression post.
