Lol, guys it's just a corn snake, he was released unharmed.

The insides not to bad, I'm working out a few issues, but hope to glass soon.

Started working on the interior. I hate having to crawl inside it right now, but it's the only way to reach the middle. I needed to use one strap to pull the hull in about 1/2" or so to meet the frame, other then that it seemed pretty fair to the rest.

I filleted all the seams a few nights ago.

3050

I then taped just the bow, because I wanted to try out some peel ply I have. It worked ok, but the weave is so open in the biaxial tape that it couldn't make it smooth. Also peel ply seems to work much better on outside edges, on the inside it slides around a lot.

3051

Today I cleaned up some fillets and then taped the inside seams.

3052

3053

I will hopefully try to get the inside glassed this week. Then I'll need to work on building the stringers.

I sanded down the tape and rolled on a slurry coat to help fill in the weave prior to bottom glass. I had ambitious plans, but they didn't quite work out. I was going to glass then whole bottom, however it is much more difficult then the exterior and took more time then I expected. So I could only finish one half.
I laid out the glass then rolled up one side. As mentioned earlier this is really a 2 person job, so it didn't go as planned. The half I rolled up is pretty distorted now. I hope it can still be used, but the biaxial is harder to straighten out then woven. Here is the half I glassed yesterday.

3060

I took longer then expected to wet out, I was using a roller to push around resin then a glass roller to smooth it down which worked great, but is a little slow. I used some scrap pieces as fillers up front.

3061

I'll fill in the sides with 6oz woven after the floor is in. Good thing about the distortion is because it's under the sole no one will see it.

I think the inside glassing is harder too, but that looks fine to me. Next is the other side and then Bob's your uncle! I don't even see any sign of bubbles or dry sections but the odd little bubble is easily dealt with.

There are only small air pockets where the rough weave hits, nothing that will bother anything. The next section will be the worst part as it's heavily distorted already, but I'll make it work.
