I'm back working on the Moonfish for a few days.

Here I'm adding 1-3/4" x 3/4" pieces to the sides of the cockpit rim. These will give the hapless sailor a handhold in the unlikely (Ha!) event of a capsize.

The temporary cleats align the new work with the top of the existing structure so it doesn't go sliding all over before I can clamp it when epoxy is applied.

Also filled in the top of the gap in the center trunk structure so there's backing for the hardware that'll get mounted on the deck in that vicinity later.

After several month on the water I'm back in the workshop.

The interior is done and encapsulated with two coats of epoxy:

Building tip: If you're going to have surfaces that you can't see and/or will be facing down (like the undesides of all those cleats and the sheer clamp), put the encapsulating epoxy on those surfaces before assembly. Coating them later has been a fiesta of epoxy runs and drips.

Now moving on to building the strip-plank deck.
