    Hey, Rick...i documented that process at the start of my thread. Look back at page 1 to see the foam form that I used. After I put the form in place and glassed it in, we worked it with fairing compound to finish the shape. I will post additional pictures to show the close to finished product. I also still need to do the port side and will post additional picture once we finish the starboard side.

    Some updates to our progress!

    Getting ready to glass in new mahogany (aft rail) and finish fairing and filling the closed in windows and vents:

    Glassed in mahogany and most of the initial feathering done. My father-in-law and friend referencing a photo of a "newer vent":

    Close up of new rail section, ready to be sanded and shaped:

    Found some rot in the fore deck! By the way, the plywood is not 3/4" in the '75...it's 1/4":

    New 4/4 rough cut mahogany scabbed in to reinforce this heavily traversed area:

    Real nice. I hope she is in the water for the interior work and I hope your AC works too.
    They get like ovens w/o AC.
