It's me again )
I have been actively working for the past time. At the end of April, I had a two-week vacation and I covered the upper part of the hull with fiberglass.
Then there was a long and tedious sanding. Now I have the upper part of the hull ready and I'm making a side rails.
The next vacation will be in the middle of July and by that time I want to turn the boat over to start fiberglassing the bottom.

When I cut the holes for the hatches, I smelled the smell of the past. I glued the deck in February 2023 and after that the hatches were sealed.

An unpleasant situation during sanding - the places of overlap of fiberglass were damaged during sanding, as they were thicker. Therefore, I re-coated some places with epoxy. But when I sand them repeatedly, sometimes the fibers peek out next to them. It's a complicated process. Therefore, I think that I will cover the upper part of the hull again with several layers of epoxy and sand it to achieve a high-quality surface.
