Well, no more taking a piece to the garage now… I got the chine logs installed tonight. Had one real qualm concerning if it was all square, but decided it was and went for it. Finished in the dark with a worklight, so I don’t have pictures tonight. Somehow adding those two strips of wood radically changes the look to me… makes it much more a “complete” shape… kind of the wireframe look.

Having the glued up chine logs outside for a couple of days and partially curved to shape was a good thing, I think. They had taken the bow somewhat and bent into the shape very easily… looks pretty fair.

Also ordered another gallon worth of epoxy from John Greer. First gallon got me through frames and initial assembly… not bad.

Money (includes shipping) = $54

Time = 2.5 hours
