March 15 - Setting up for the second set of panels
Once this second set of panels are ready, construction of the hull will begin.

Before setting up the panels for joining, I flipped the previous set over and traced them with a pencil. I then placed this set of panels in the outlines -- each of the panels was bang on!

It's important to set up your work area before beginning each part of the process. In this photo I've got plastic wrap underneath all the joints, fiberglass tape cut to length and set beside the joints, wood blocks and weights are at the ready, and the mylar film is oriented in the same position that it will be used.

The same set-up is duplicated at the joint near the stern of the boat.
