laminating and glueing stations
Saturday, Jul 10, 2021     sibling,         plywood,   bulkheads,

I did the last scarf joints and all permanent stations are glued together and most of them are glassed and framed except of station 6.

I stupidly ordered 12kg epoxy with medium viscosity which doesn’t work well for laminating. But now I have enough epoxy for gluing, fairing and filleting for the next months. Another dull move was to cut too much from station 8 away. So I had to do 2 extra joints:

On the other hand it was good practice and the official reason is (as from the Gougeon Brothers advised) using scarf joints to reduce off cut. Working 12 hours a day seem to influence my concentration :)
