@terrydi I continue to marvel at your boat. Its pretty much the gold standard for a '59 restore. Real inspiration!
I had that hatch gasket up in the cuddy. Used contact cement. Made a big mess, and never could get it to stick well. I'm gonna try something with a thinner channel. I do like your idea for trimming the bottom of the helm panels. That is great!
I've got a couple of gelcoat repairs from taking the boat off the blocks. Other than that just small bits and bobs. Hoping to get out this weekend!
