In the work yard, we have been busting our butts inside the tent to get things knocked off our list while we still have the ability to work without the aid of heaters. Matt's big push for the month of November is to get as many of our flush deck hatch molds in as possible. Once they've been glassed (and hopefully we'll cover that more in next week's episode), he has to measure and cut the space in the deck where they'll sit - and then get them bonded in.

We do take a break from the work and get on a charter boat for the day, where we've spent the past few months trying to raise money for Fish For a Cure. On on the Chesapeake Bay, we try to catch the biggest rockfish of all the 70-some boats participating. And, we have a heck of a great day while trying.

Then it's back to work, where I take over the screen and show some of the fairing I've been up to in the master hull. For weeks I've been tackling areas, trying to get them *just perfect* before receiving a tip that will now change everything. A simple blue dye to work as a guide coat.

We hope you enjoy!
