Establishing the Shape
The objective of this process is to establish the shape of the hull and the deck, including their fit with each other. This is done with thickened epoxy.

I decided to use some gel superglue to be sure the panel sections didn’t creep out of position. I had some left over from my last build that was probably close to its shelf life.

Here are some superglue tacks in the bow

and in the stern.

Stern completed.

Bow completed.

Deck completed.

Inserting wires from deck to hull. NOTE: The hull isn’t glued to the deck at this point. This is establishing the fit between them.


After a short camping trip, I’ll be gluing in the hatches.
