The Whole Hull

After church on Sunday we removed all the stitches. Most came out easy but a few needed a little heat to loosen epoxy around them. With the stitches out of the way, a light sanding was in order.
Meanwhile, Willie went to work cutting out the deck form pieces.

After filleting all the gaps where the stitches had been, Kathy and I glassed all of the seams. The strips of glass are cut on the bias. In order to get a consistent width, Kathy used a 2x4 as a template for the cutting wheel. Wish I'd thought of that idea years ago!

View from the stern with all the seams, including the rear bulkhead, glassed in place.

We'd like to go further, but needed to let the glass cure overnight before the next steps.
