After removing the last wires and clamps from the side panels at the bow, I completely filled the little gap between the side – and the bottom panels. Once this joint has been sanded smooth, I will put some glass tape over it and also the long fillet in the center. After that, I will put glass cloth down to cover the lot.
The second bit of activity … I removed the waste from bulkhead 7 without too much trouble. Now I can install the blocking for the floorboards on bulkhead 7 and 8. The clamps just hold a length of 3/4″ x 3/4″ hardwood along the flimsy top of bulkhead 7 in order to protect from accidental damage.
