FG taping the soles

Last night Cinzia filled the screw holes in the soles with resin. Today we started the FG taping of the soles, beginning with the forward one. We first prepared the surface for bonding with #50 grit sandpaper, and then cleaned everything with a vacuum cleaner and then a rag wetted with water and alcohol. We then  prepared a putty with resin thickened with microspheres and some cabosil, which was spread along the sole/hull corner using a 5 cm diameter plastic ball to make a fillet. At the end, the 10 cm FG tape was put over the fillet. About 4 m of tape were used. Here's a pic

Total work time to date: 307 hours
