Flipped the boat once more to glass the underside of the deck hatch lips I added...glass doesn't like to hang upside down!

Looking Good

Nice looking build. You can always just slow it down when the water gets skinny

Thanks Ron! Yeah, it's deep enough, and not too fast. Planning on a 15-18 mile overnight. I plan to relax my butt off. It's been a busy summer and a busy build, and I'm not worried about finding whitewater this time of year, just moving water and a nice campsite.

I know I'll hit rocks eventually, just don't want to do it right away.

By the way, didn't realize you were on the Buzz. I've enjoyed seeing pics of your Oljeto on the Whitewater Dories group. The brown accents on your boat and oars look sharp.

Thanks

I have been on here for a while.
I do like my new colors on Oljeto. I have started adding some "Bottle Green" accents on my oars and hoping to add to my boat stripes this winter if I can get some shop time.
