So glue touched my boat in a meaningful way tonight kinda suspenseful. It’s like Christmas but the present is not having to recut panels again

If you are going to use a West System glue make sure it is well cured before you put Marine Epoxy over it.
I have not used much West but it is famous for blushing so make sure to clean it well with water and a light sanding before doing your glassing. Maybe one of the guys who use it will chime in.
Your excitement over laying the glue is normal :D I always enjoy doing some epoxy work right before finishing the day so I have something to check out the next day :lol:

So laid the glass down back at it again. Pics below let me know if I screwed something up. We should have way better pics now because got a new phone an s8... went out in the kayak around 2 feet turned into 5-6 and the iPhone 5 didn't make it. Off topic I saw Adrift the other day and me and my wife walked out with very different takeaways. I can't get my mind off a sailboat and crusing along the coast.

Maybe you should be building a sailboat :D . Thoughts / dreams of coastal sailing my AD16 occupy most of whatever room is left in my head.

Your glass looks great.

Nice! Check out my build. I'm building outside in my backyard. Building outside does pose some challenges, but there are also some advantages too. I actually prefer it over building inside.
