Drew and I worked on the port side of the boat as Brendan and Dave worked the starboard side. Once all laminates were dry fitted, we worked quickly to glue and staple the stern section in case there would be any shifting of the planks over the span of waiting a few days. This required some blocking and screws to hold the laminates down where there is fiberglass cloth underneath where the staples wont hold.
Although we are about a month ahead of schedule, it appears that we will not have the boat flipped before the holidays. So we shall look forward to that when we return in January. Before that, we have PLENTY of sanded and fairing to do. Thanks for checking in.
Also, if anyone checking in ever has any questions, feel free to post in the comments or email me and I would be happy to answer them. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please check out this month's issue of Classic Boat magazine, there is a very nice article on the Infanta, a very well known boat at Pease Boat Works.
