Slick trick! Can't wait to see what you conjure up for the layout.

Thank You Cape Man! :D

I decided to use some of the left over foam I have going forward.
This is easier than fitting wood over the curves. An added benefit is of course the weight and it bends!

Closer Look:

Being so light weight there is no need of supports.
Duct tape holds them in place quite well.

Image

All have been left proud of level.
A simple hand block and some 80 grit will easily allow me to come to a perfect level.

Image

Once both sides are leveled I'll pull fillets on the bottom and lay two layers of glass tape.
That's all for now. I'm gonna grab a bite of lunch and relax for a bit. Y'all have a great day! :D :D :D

Smart move using that foam. I am sure it saved you a ton of work and time.

I didn't follow this part.... You are going to glass tape the batons in place? All of them or just the foam ones?
Is this something that's required for the bigger boat? Hopefully it isn't something I missed on mine, as I just epoxy coated all my batons before foaming and gluing down the sole.

Thanks Narfi! The glass is only for the foam. Foam has to have glass, only then is it strong.

Ok cool. That makes sense to me and what I guessed, but didn't want to assume :)
