the new project 54" of lobstah

I recently picked this boat up. Its a 54" lobster style hull. When I got it, it was in white gelcoat. it had some nicks an a few rough spots along the mold line. The mold line is right down the center line.

Construction is pretty good, it seems solid.

I have blocked the hull with 120grit, then I applied 2 coats of high build primer. After the primer, I blocked out the boat again with 320grit.

I will leave the hull in primer until I finish building the superstructure.

Did you decide on a drive setup/prop? Should be a fine "lobster" boat!
