Default 23 sCCeptre

Next on the chopping block...

The actual hull shell is in really nice shape minus the transom skin. As you can see there was some stringer issues... Will get a new grid with as little wasted space as we can, a bracket, a CC, and a curvy one-off cap.

1978 hull, nice n thick, liner as u see it weighed 300# alone. The hull is laid up nicely, stringers not so much...

Pumped to see you work magic on a 23. What's your idea for the cap/shear?

Shear will stay the same, its perfect as is! Cap will have a big radiused coaming in the bow and will be wide enough to walk the length of the boat. In the stern it will either overhang the new rear bulkhead or the bullhead will have a toekick, not sure yet...

Are you building the cap yourself? I'm also converting a sceptre to cc and going to need a cap as well. Looking good!
