Not Exactly a Boat, But......

I can't really claim that I have a boat yet, but certainly turning her over and removing the last few moulds (molds) has produced a hull, which I boarded for the first time.


The white strips you can see are the masking-tape I used to stop the moulds from getting glued to the planking. The next task is to sand -paper the hull internally, so as to remove all vestiges of glue.

An interesting view taken from inside the hull, giving a view never possible to see when she was being built upside-down.



You can see all the glue that has to be removed running (white) between each plank. Important Lesson to learn: wipe off as much surplus glue as you can whilst it's still wet - given that it is almost impossible at times when the hull is upside-down and full of moulds.
