Looks great! Did you make your own stencils? How did you seal the rivet holes where you pulled the center bench out?

Thanks all.

Perci, I bought some cheap stencils. All holes were filled with closed end blind rivets with 3M 5200.

Nice work. Lot of man hours but I am sure you will enjoy hunting out of it for years to come! :clapping:

It looks better than most new boats right out of the store. Good job and enjoy her for many years. :thumbsup:

Thanks all! It was a lot more man hours than I ever planned on putting into it :grin:

I have to start on the blind now... Not looking forward to that! Feel like its going to be frustrating.
