The boat progresses. Today I installed the combing around the cockpit opening. It was glued up into an oval last night and today I sanded it smooth and rounded the edge with a router. It took me most of the day to work up the nerve to go near my precious boat with a power tool but the edge needed rounding and once I got started I quite enjoyed it, despite the noise. The job was slightly rough in spots but easily remedied with a little sanding. Next, it was glued and clamped to the hull. Like I said before, I am now the Queen of Clamps.
Nest step is to make the hatch openings. I’ll try and get an early start tomorrow. Everything always takes twice as long as I think it will.
