Cabin top

All of the boat’s parts have now been liberated from the plywood sheets or, in the case of patterns, the sheet of MDF. I have joined the two halves of the cabin top with a strip of glass on the underside and also put down a first coat of epoxy.

The most time consuming task for today was to sand every bit of the storage area between bulkheads 1 and 2. This area now has a coat of primer and one coat of enamel (well, 1/2 a coat, after the sanding). Because of the shelf and the electrical box, there are so many inside corners and edges … sanding this is only fun if you are a contortionist with a penchant for lots of white dust. I will definitely mask off the gluing areas of the underside of the forward deck, and I will prime and paint it before gluing the panel down.
