First glass

All flat bits for the keel and center board have been removed from their sheets of plywood. Using a small handsaw to cut the little tabs and a small sharp hand plane to clean up, made this an easy job. The keelson is glued up, and the panels for the center board trunk are glassed. Let’s see how the West System 105/205 blend does in this weather ( the temperature is currently about 10C, with steady rain ).

While I was removing these pieces, I also attacked the parts for the cradle from that thick and heavy sheet of MDF. I won’t have to lift that again!
