Yay! Finished glassing the interior
The last portion to be glassed was the bow compartment, which is a hassle to reach.
Notice that for the forward compartments, I marked up the fiberglass cloth with a Sharpie to help me cut it out and position it. Nobody will ever see it after the boat is finished.
Making progress on glassing the interior
This is tedious work (probably the most tedious part of the build), and I am about two-thirds done.
Starting to glass the interior
I finished all the interior filleting. Then I sanded the fillets in the rearmost section and applied fiberglass cloth to it.
Filleting the joints
This is a time-consuming step. First, I pulled out all the wires. Then I started applying nice rounded fillets of epoxy paste to all the joints. I am about 2/3 done, and it will probably take about 30 batches of epoxy (one patch mostly fills a 12-ounce plastic cup).
I also added a few cleats to the floors and bulkheads that I hadn’t glued in place before assembly.
