The bottom is faired and I rolled on two coats of Interlux Primekote primer on the bottom and sides. I like the Interlux products so far and have decided to use their products exclusively thruout the rest of the build.
I was able to flip the boat over with the help of my son Jordon, Jay Fullwider and Tim Osborne, Tim has purchased a set of plans and will be using my build cradle to start on Colorado i550 #2.
Carpet pad on the driveway worked well in preventing any scratches during the flip. Time Machine is now upright and ready to have the topsides finished.
