Stern bulkhead

The stern bulkhead was stitched into place tonight, with considerably less difficulty than the middle one last night. This completes the stitching for a while. With a three day holiday weekend ahead, I will be flipping the hull over. Thickened epoxy will be applied to the joints between all the strakes to seal up the hull. Then the wire stitches can be removed, and the tiny holes can be sealed up. After all, no boat floats for very long with hundreds of little holes in it. Following the removal of the stitches, the bottom is glassed. That will be a whole new experience. Total hours 32.50.
