|A few days later, the peel ply layer has been removed and the centreline has been glassed with two layers of biaxial tape, from transom to tip of the bow.|
|The transom and bracket have been glassed, lapped over onto the sides and bottom of the hull. The centre portion will be glassed after the hull has been turned over.|
We did a dry-fit to check for correct shape, placement and fairness, held by temporary screws. The target is a fair curve when seen from all directions, as well as matching alignment between the two sides when viewed from the front. The screws were used later for alignment to ensure that the strakes were glued on in exactly the right positions.
