and … more glass

Only a short session today. Fitting the lower breast hook was one of the things that are a bit scary. I shaped the edges to match (reasonably closely) the vertical angle of the side panels first. The tip of the breast hook was about 40mm away from the joint of the panels, before applying some persuasive force using the clamp. Every squeeze on the clamp closed the gap a little while spreading the panels outwards a bit. I had to apply some serious force and, judging by the noises, I expected the joint in the bow to give up … but it didn’t.

I also feathered the edges of the glass cloth that had been epoxied down yesterday, and I put down glass on the starboard side of the area forward of bulkhead 8.
