    Thanks Bruce.
    Yep, coming together slow but sure.
    Some pictures kind of reverse order.

    That foam job went Great. Major expansion like it is supposed to do.

    I just need to do all this stuff to My boat one of these days before I can't

    I am thinking I am going to end up with my 59 Skagit 20 offshore and that Dorsett Catalina that I got from Chuck. He drove down to California to get it only to find the stingers are gone in it. Dorsetts MDO plywood stringers....Wasn't the best move on there part.

    My daughter is wanting the Skimaster (Pink Panther) so will be selling the Uniflite and others some time down the line.

    Cabin is almost finished. Ready for paint.
    Now for the cabin door frame and door next.

    Had to throw in a picture of my Shop Dog, Yoda.. He does not bounce when he barks either.
    He lets me know when the mail is in and UPS arrives. No sneaking up on the Helmar

    Updates are moving along...

    One of them I wanted to share is from last week when Helmar and I joined forces to conquer some of the remaining "to do" list. One of the list items was to get rid of the old original fuel tanks. After some discussion it was decided it might be best to cut them up first before attempting to dispose of them properly at a Hazo-house. Plus I really wanted to see how potentially bad they could be from the modern fuel. Part of the cutting up discussion was to keep the facial side of the tanks because it was all fiberglass and a nice flat piece. Helmar and I share the same mental disorder of "you never know when you can use it, so don't throw it away..."

    Fast forward...

    Later we had a discussion on how best to fill some larger holes in the helm box and other places. Good ideas were had however we had an "ah-ha" moment and after some measuring and measuring again it was decided that we could utilize the old cut up fuel tanks to fill the holes on the boat. It was after all fiberglass and, it was original Skagit pieces that would be going back into the Skagit. I must say I absolutely dig the idea of being able to reuse Skagit fuel tanks to help the Skagit boat and keep it living on. Once the gel-coat or paint goes over it you'll never know it had holes filled.

    The funny part of the idea was coming up with the right word for using the old fuel tank to fill the fuel tank filler holes. The best we came up with was "cannibalism" as it seem to fit the situation.

    Pics show the story..
