Three hours after the last posts time for an update as the epoxy is cured.


The bulkhead with the peel ply removed.


And the peel ply removed from the hull


A close-up of the epoxy surface and you can see the stippled effect that the peel has left in the surface.


Here's a view of the other part of the epoxied surface and from this angle the stippling is very evident.

So, I plan to put the bulkhead back in place but only with a couple of screws holding it in place. this will give the cockpit a little more rigidity whilst I work on the starboard side. Once both sides are prepared then I'll do the epoxy work to fix them in place permanently all in one go.

Stay tuned.

Time for a fresh cup of tea.
