The dual action ('DA') air sander makes fairing out the rolled hull/deck edge far less challenging.
The rear cockpit 'skirts' are fitted after tabbing in entire hull/deck seam from inside the hull, and placement of flotation foam. The 'stern' notation on the keelson was to keep us from installing it backwards. Made sense to me....
Spraying the faired edge with DuPont's epoxy primer. The final step, seen below, is to shoot the entire hull with the finish paint.
The entire bottom was re-faired after coming out of the mould. Note fairing compound where the transom meets the deck.
When the Elvstrum/Andersen bailers are set with epoxy, it takes an act of Congress to get them out.
John Stapel receiving the finished hull at his shop, for shooting of the final top coat of paint. For those who know Willie, having this work done at a place called 'John's Collision', is somehow apropos.
Shooting the final coat of urethane topcoat in John's new $70,000 paint booth. This facility also has the capability to 'post-cure' the finished epoxy laminate.
