March 15 - Seepage shows the colour of Sapele
Some epoxy seeped through the joints showing the rich dark brown colour that the boat will be when completed. A piece of Okoume is on the left for comparison.

Note that I had lightly sanded both sides of the panels around the area of the joints to remove any dirt and oxidization. If I had not done this, the area that now has epoxy would seal in any contaminates resulting in discolouration around the joints.
