Scupper 74


I spent much of the day on planning and administration as I sorted out various discussions we’d had during our meeting the day before, researched some materials options, but after a few hours of that I did get up to the boat for some “real” work, including another fairly quick round of sanding on the interior patchwork as required, bringing these areas pretty much to their final level of preparation.  With a few minor changes coming for the interior, there’d be more prepwork on other areas soon to come, though.

I continued work on the rudder as well, lightly sanding the main application of fiberglass over the bottom edge to prepare it for the final layers of fiberglass to encapsulate the corners and tie together all parts of the repair, which I finished up next.

Later, I finished rough-measuring for interior trim and other new materials required, the first step towards calculating what I’d need to order in order to continue the interior work.
