It is a new week and the epoxy work I did Friday has cured. Today is the fiftieth day of work in the shed and I sense that this week will be all about doing fillets and taping seams.
The morning has been spent straightening out the wiggle in the upper hullsides at the deck level. This went well. By using wire windlasses (see adjacent photo), braces and wedges I now have the hull shearline straightened into its true curve. The biggest problem was at bulkhead #4. If you recall from an earlier post, I needed to insert a 3/8 inch wedge at the deck level. This turned out to be true for the other side too. But now that all this is settled, I will be mixing up wood flour epoxy to make endless fillets along the horizontal seams on both sides and glue to attach the deck beams in place at bulkheads # 1, 5 and 6.
