Finally the hull was ready and could be seperated from the formers. A support was quickly built and the boat was turned. I was amazed by the weight of my hull, because my old PIRAT dinghy was about twice as heavy!


Frames, floor timbers and bulkheads were nicely glued to the hull planks, and the whole interior made a nice cleaned-up impression.


Measuring the diagonale between stern, various bulkheads and steven proved that the plan figuers were matched very closely.

Meanwhile it had become November and very cold. As my workshop is unheated, I had to pause works, as with these temperatures there is no way of working with epoxy resins. They become so sticky that they won't come out of their cans, won't mix properly, and won't react properly.
