Dec 11 - Panels laid out
The panels for the left side of the boat have been laid out and are ready to glue the butt joints. This will produce the 14' long sections whick will be stitched together to form the hull (the two left panels) and deck (two right panels).

Each panel has a small white sticker to show the number of the panel. For example, 1S(L) is the Left side, Stern end of the number one panel. The panels are all well marked and easy to orient; each sticker is the inside of the boat, so there's no chance of mixing any panels up before gluing them together.
