Initial fairing

The last topside planks are installed and screw holes are bunged, and its time for initial fairing of the hull sides. Used a DeWalt right angle sander with a 8" softpad for a quick rough sanding of the bungs and plank joints. The renaming sanding will be done by hand with longboards.

Moved the hull outside since it generate a lot of dust. Jacked it up into manageable work height.

Next up is new covering boards, deck framing and planks. However, due to extensive travel the next year, the boat will get another hiatus as I will spend much of my time in Europe.  Who was counting time anyway....... The work will continue in August 2013. Check in for updates then.
