This varnish needs to dry 72 hours on every coat but the plug is now sealed.

The next step is putting release wax on it, so i expect that the negative mold construction will start this week.
Looks like you'll be laying some CF soon! For the top are you going to use x-bracing, or something like Ovation's fan brace?

I enjoy the journey as well, but it's always important to focus on the goal! That IS what we ultimately must achieve, especially if we have investors and customers. The journey is just a means to an end, but yes it should be enjoyed as well.
