Sides, bulkheads, transom, seats

Day off today allowed a lot of work to be accomplished.  Sanded 1 side and pre-coated both chine logs with 3 coats of epoxy.  Cut out all parts except for rear seat and middle seat.  Plotted cutouts in bulkhead 2 and 3.  Also, started framing transom.  However, time flies.  Wish I could dedicate more large chunks of time to the build instead of 1 - 2 hour increments.  Plan is to continue work on smaller parts (daggerboard, rudder, bulkheads, etc.) through the winter where epoxy can cure in the basement and then resume the assembly in the spring.  Others who have artificially warmed their workshop/ built heating tents for large pieces are much braver than I.   Enjoying the process, so I can wait.

Lots of parts cut out and marked

Not sure how I am going to sand the epoxy on the top and inside corner of the chine log...

Redwood is being used for some framing instead of the chine logs

It's starting to get crowded and a few too many projects...
