Got home at a decent hour (twice in a week! Hope my boss doesn’t read this :-)) and got to trim hull bottom some more. And guess what… I finished! Got both sides of the bow done and all. That part went MUCH faster than the first time. I think it was a case of knowing how to do it this time (plus new, sharp blades on the planer). At least they were sharp until I hit a few screws I missed removing before I got there. Anyway, I got all the hull panels trimmed to shape. Took a few minutes and started marking the centerline to fit the external keel. I have to mark a strip 2" wide right down the centerline and plane it flat and start on the keel next.

Time = 1.5 hours
