« Part 15: Slow but steady resumes! -- resin and final chine log fitting Part 16 of Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser series Part 17: Progress. Halfway through resining the S/C »

Resined one side back in. The pegs worked really well. I was able to find the screw holes fairly easily, at least in enough time before the resin began to cure. :-) If a board wasn’t lined up perfectly, the screw going in brought it back into place. 13 frames, the transom, and the stem were done on 4.5 squirts of West System epoxy with about 11 scoops of thickener. I did this over three batches in three different containers with three different filleting applicators.

The next day…

Finished resining the other side!

Here’s my “peanut butter” mix.

Looks like it’s coming together nicely. You will be fairing the frame before you know it.
