Very nice...a couple questions.
What is the portside notch in the bulkhead for?
Do you have an epoxy pre- coat or glass on the deck where it is wrapped with plastic for the deck to hull glassing?
thanks,

Hi Paul

The notch in the bulkhead is to accommodate the lump from a Maroske fitting which ended up just in an awkward location. I had accounted for it, but then decided later to move the bulkhead back a couple of inches in case I needed to alter the seating location. There is not much web conversation on this boat, so I thought I'd play it safe and allow some wriggle room.

The wrapping on the deck is clear packing tape. I used clear in this instance because the stuff I have here is really poor quality and doesn't stick very well, so it is easy to rip off without leaving adhesive residue from the tape on the hull.

The deck is completely unfinished on the outside at this stage. I do the deck differently to most other builders, in that I finish it inside, glue it to the hull, then sand and glass the outside.

I do it this way for a few reasons, but mainly because the deck remains more flexible this way and is easier to fit to the hull, and it is also handy to use the deck glass to join the halves, eliminating the need to tape the outside seam.
