"Martinac. First coat of West System epoxy on the starboard side plywood. Even following the application of the penetrating epoxy sealer, the plywood is still soaking up the epoxy in these warm temperatures. It’s still a challenge getting the…"

"Martinac. I’m waiting on more fasteners for the bottom stringers. The stringers shown on the port side are permanently attached. Today I removed the two remaining old stringers on the starboard side. That should be the last of the major…"

"Martinac. The two outermost bottom stringers have a twist at the bow ends. Not much, but definitely a twist. I’m going to clamp a board for a few days to see if some of the clamping force relaxes. Otherwise I may have to steam some of the…"

"Martinac. I pulled some of the tape off the bottom to inspect how well the holes filled with epoxy. Many, but not all of them, filled all the way to the tape. Some are only partially filled with epoxy. I’ll have to fill the holes from the…"
