A lot of work.

Getting close to finish laying the inner bottom layer. Puh, lot of work though. It takes a good 20-30 minutes per board laying the bottom this way. Fitting the piece, bedding with 5200, get all those screws in, and finally cleaning up the 5200 squeeze out. I understand why most use sheets of plywood, both for labor and cost. I don't regret one bit though, that I'm doing it this way. Once I get the boat upright, I will see the grain direction the original way.

Another 3 hour of work and I'm done. Once the 5200 sets, one final fairing and the sealing with CPES. Then on to fitting the bottom planks.

Bjorn, "A lot of work" but it's starting to take shape... It will be fun to watch the planks being fitted on the bottom. Easy for me to say...
