237 Hrs – Hullsides Ready to Fit
I put a second coat of epoxy on the hullside joints tonight and then marked up and drilled pilot holes at 150mm (6") centres to take the screws which will hold the panels tightly in place whilst the epoxy goes off. I have a bit more key sanding to do on the backbone and bulkhead edges and I will then be ready to fit the hullsides for real (gulp!). I confess I am a bit apprehensive about this these are big critical pieces of ply and they must be fitted quickly and accurately. Could be a stressful weekend!
