June 03: The
hatch combing fore and aft are in place,
and a second coat of epoxy is on the entire
hull. The combings went together well;
I made lap joints for the corners using
the table saw. The combings are pine.
The decks are in place now, too, and are
decided to put a fillet on top of the
external chine and do some more rounding
in hopes of significantly softening the
chine, and to ensure a water-tight joint.
I did an OK job of applying the epoxy;
it still took a few hours of sanding with
a sanding drum to get the effect I was
step is to do final fairing and then paint
the exterior of the hull.
so far: Add $25 for a quart of
gray Interlux primer, $10 for more Elmer's
glue, $6 for more blue 3M masking tape,
$10 for two-part putty, and $3 for duct
tape, for a total of $343.93.
spent so far: Add 10 hours for
installing the combings and sanding the
hull, for a total so far of 89 hours.
