Hull work

The hull got its treatment of epoxy fillers over the past days and in days that will follow. The bottom where the cloth tape overlaps is a bit of a sticking point and I have had to do several coats to taper it. I'm still working on it. The epoxy filler takes more than a day to cure in order for me to sand without clogging the sandpaper, so I have to plan other tasks in this wait time.
The plank joints and screw holes got several coats of filler then sanded after each coat to a smooth finish. The underside of the planking got a fillet of epoxy filler as well.

Time: 8 hr
