2015.12.24 - Two Milestones

Two milestones have now been reached. The first is the completion of the second veneer layer and the second is the routing of the stepped edges for the next two layers. With these two milestones now reached all the damaged hull has been removed and the replacement can be carried out with no further routing required. Just lots and lots of veneer strakes and epoxy.

The last few pieces of the second veneer layer now in place.

The steps routed, the router guides removed and the tarpaulin taken down.

Another view of the hull.

A close up of the steps cut into the hull. As you can see from this photo I have to go round with some epoxy filler and close up all the gaps. When that is done I shall roughly fair off the repair so far to smooth down the high spots and excess epoxy.
