This Sunday for father’s day as a present I got four hours of uninterrupted time. Enough to do the final step that will make this hull finally water tight. Glue the centerboard well to the keelson. I set up a string down the centre line to help me line up the centreboard well and make sure it is square.
I then put the first layer of clear epoxy down on all the surfaces and then a nice thick layer of thickened epoxy.
It was a hot day and I had to make sure my sweat did not drip down into the epoxy as I was troweling it down. This was a critical step and I am now looking forward to completing the centreboard well trim and side braces.
then on the next projects:
forward and aft bulkheads
Thwarts and benches,
Knees and floorboards,
Paint and install the hardware.
Find a good trailer for the boat.
