Wiring harnesses all installed. All holes cut. ITS gimbal installed. Extended swim platform stainless hardware is currently being mounted. This will be the next boat leaving the shop.

Look close there. See that buffing wheel in the background above the dash?
If you guys had any idea how many times the rigger walked a hand full of screws to that wheel to buff stainless screw heads...

So seadeck or marine mat? now has a pattern for me. I like that flooring, wrong colors but looks great, does it snap in?

Apologies @Eliminator Boats
I only have two pics of the deck of this newest 27 in the booth. And, one of them is of my screw up, lol.
So here’s the scoop.

This is the result of my slight over estimation of my ability to get tape off in time before liquid gel becomes solid gel.
About the opposite of a clean line. That orange gap at the top of the pic the pinstripe is just gone. Came off with the tape.

So I had 3/4 of a boat pinstriped fine and two sections ragged and ripped.

This section of deck detail has been deleted. Will be all orange fade.
A5ACE9B9-A487-4D66-88CC-239FA97F94AD.jpeg

In the above pic, the section that ragged and ripped section 3 hours later. Offending pinstripe removed, cleaned, re-finelined, and sprayed.
Like it never happened. :cool:
As luck would have it the mold had been freshly waxed. We can typically do two parts out of a mold from one wax job.
Had this part been #2 on the wax, I probably would have scrapped the entire thing and had them re-wax the molds. You guys dint want to know what happens if the boat sticks to the mold from improper/not enough wax!
Not something I’d want to be responsible for, that’s for sure!
