July 20 - Hatch lips glassed and epoxied
The past few days have been spent doing the four thin(ish) fill coats on the deck and a final coat of epoxy on the hull. While waiting for coats of epoxy on the hull to cure I took advantage of the time to apply fibreglass to the hatch lips and bulkheads.

Although the Pygmy manual suggests not applying epoxy on the cockpit side of the front bulkhead, I decided to fibreglass it anyway as I may install a foot operated pump or install tie-down attachment points for storing cart wheels, etc.

I also sanded the exposed surfaces on the coaming risers and applied another coat of epoxy.
