Laminated port lower panel today. Other side getting prepped on cutting table. We had a staffing glitch, snowstorm; my son Calvin on spring break rescued me.

Look close-lotsa resin in breather...I poured it a bit heavy as we were a little short on crew. Bagged at 85 minutes. 120 min gel time...

I reversed the panels. Outside is up-better lamination quality for the exterior. But more fairing-touche’.

We glassed the other big lower panel today. Used less resin somehow. Got 48 oz left that I never mixed. Still used 240, 48, 192 or 480 ounces of resin in the part. The bottom wetout went really well..

Bow and forward portion glassed. This is the hard part. Time to trim these panels to the right heights and build the upper panels

Hard to believe, but the all glass bit is 12’ long and the vee is 8’, so 20’ of glasswork.

I can only imagine the wherewithal a build like this requires. Fascinating to say the least.

Skoota update.

All large panels are done. We are now fitting and clamping the tops.
