Nope boat won't be ready. Worked on it all weekend. Its close. But next weekend I am not home and the following weekend is Unity Weekend. I also am waiting on Painterchic to come back from NY. She has designed new decals for transom. And she is doing the Hydroturf on the front deck and side running boards.

Besides its going to be hot hot hot. I plan on that Saturday working on helping setup for the banquet that night.
