|Tape protects from epoxy ooze. Gives crisp edge when removed at 1/2 cure state.|
|bias set glass|
Double layered glass at cockpit. Used separate pieces at stems with a 1.5" overlap towards center. The interior really soaked up the epoxy. This may be due to the rougher sanding. Boat still seems quite light. No telling how much I removed in sanding the interior. It weighed 20# before sanding & interior glass. Will weigh again. Lay up went very well save for one small spot where I put spreader sticks to maintain the beam. This stick slid about a 1/4" down and took the glass with it. No problems. This will be covered up in the seaming of the 2 halves. Timeline: 185 hours.

Took the hull into the back yard to locate the foot pegs. Here are some nice pics and one of a clown in a boat.
