Looks like this once sanded, the final coat of varnish will bring back the shine.
The hull assembly has given some folks a bit of trouble when it comes to aligning the bulkheads with the hull side panel bottom edges. The alignment is difficult once the chine logs have been glued on. So I decided to mark and drill the side panels and bulkheads before the side panels are glued together. Panel marked with bulkhead locations.
Temporary screw holes drilled.
I aligned the bulkheads and used the pre-drilled holes in the side panels as guides to drill the bulkheads.
Now when the time comes to assemble the hull all I have to do is line up the drilled holes and everything should go together correctly. The curved and beveled sides of bulkheads 1 and 2 were impossible to clamp in place for drilling so I just drilled one locating hole per side.
Once marked and drilled the side panels got glued together with a splice. The ply has a bit of curve to it and it's amazing how much weight it took to get the ends to lie reasonably flat.
