First ama almost done

Five hours of work today. First thing in the morning was removing the screws from the deck panel, using the soldering iron to heat the stuck ones. I then grabbed my power plane and started to fair the deck edges. Here's a pic showing the significant amount of sawdust produced

and here his the hull with the deck edges faired (not yet finished though)

We then filled the screw holes with resin

and glued the two 2-cm thick plywood pads to the deck (here's the aft one): the center hole of both pads is oversized with respect to the steel stud: it is filled with thickened resin to create a very hard support for the stud itself.

At the end of the day, here's the completed hull with the plastic hatch

Total work time to date: 195 hours.
