38 and 1/2 hours and the fun begins!!!!

Temporary deck bulkheads in place, ready to be hot glued so the deck work can begin.  8 degrees this morning!!  I"ll need warmer weather before the epoxy work begins.  That's OK because Christmas is keeping us busy!!
Another one of the 1000 uses for duct tape!!  It helps hold the shape keeps the temporary bulkheads in place until the hot glue dries.
Starting the temporary bulkheads.

The hull has 3 more thin coats of epoxy to fill the weave of the fiber glass and is now turned right side up and ready to start the deck.  I had a nice visit with Lou Farhood and he offered encouragement and construction tips.  He finished a beautiful Wood Duck 12 Hybrid last August.  I copied his cradle that fits on the saw horse.  It is 1 and 1/2 inch pvc pipe with foam insulation as a pad.  It is simple cheap and works great.  Thanks Lou!!
