Panels …

The top side panels and the panel for the rear of the cabin have their second coat of epoxy, and the backrest panels also have a coat of goo. The drain holes in the transom are done. I drilled small pilot holes from the inside and then used a 20 mm hole-saw from the outside.

After giving the area underneath the cockpit deck a final coat of paint, I secured (dry) the panels with a few screws so that I can mark and cut the holes for the lazarette hatches in situ.  The centrelines of the cleats and bulkheads are already marked on the panels for temporary screws later, when they will be glued down.
