Sanded the railings.
Found a few more spots that need to be fixed.
More glazing applied.
The two top caps have been sanded lightly and drilled to accept the small wire pins I plan to use to hold the railings in place once the glue is applied.
Did a little work on the bowsprint.
Did some measuring and the back end of the bowsprint was short 1/16".
It would have been fine had the mounting screw holes not already been drilled and tapped.
Made a square plastic shim and glued it to the bowsprint.
After it cures and I sand it to shape, painting will take place.
Time to look for boards or steel bars that will reach across the hull to hold the top caps down when I glue them.
These are so I can set weights.
It will also keep both rails flat with each other.
Planning for next week.
The hull is very close to complete.
It may be time to repaint the complete hull.
Then work can begin on the staying rig.
Some of it done but there is the rig to hull connections left to do.
Got to figure out how to make it disconnect easily for transport and assembly at the pond.
I have several ideas, everything is starting to come together.
