Outstanding Slim!

How did you get the Dumas deck fittings to look so nice, and what did you use for the cockpit coaming?

Very fine work. What type of finish did you use? Resin and cloth?

Coaming is evergreen plastic.1/4 inch channel and 1/8 inch half round.some fittings are proboat.others i chromed with caswell kit.I bought raw unchromed fittings from dumas and chromed them.Much sanding and polishing then several layers of copper then chrome.I followed ed crowells excellant thread on chroming.

ROD- Super job on the hydro. What size brushless motor are you running in that baby? Me thinks you are going to have a very large lake to run her in because she is going to go from here to there very, very fast.

No kidding really good job!!!
