To begin, I lightly sanded the newly-filled core areas, just to scuff the surface and remove any hard ridges. I also sanded the fiberglass patches on the foredeck.
Afterwards, I finished up cutting all the material for the rest of the job: 4 layers of 1708 biax for each section of the deck.
With all material cut and ready, I spent the remainder of the day wetting out and installing all the new fiberglass over both forward sidedecks and around the poop deck and cockpit sidedecks. At the poop deck, I extended the large after pieces of cloth right over the steering room hatch, though I didn’t wet out the center portion. I did this to help the material hold together once wet out. I’d cut out the center section later.
