Just completed tacking the hull joints and have a very slight protrusion of the top hull panels over the lower hull panels about 6" forward of the stern, running about six inches until the edges continue forward perfectly butted. The overhang is about 1/2 the width of the plywood, i.e. very slight. I tried like the dickens to force it in with stiches and clamps, but ended up more afraid of splitting the panels than of having to smooth out a small overhang later.
So my question is how best to smooth it out before covering with glass. If I sand the protrusion, I'm afraid of exposing the ply, which would not look as good as it should. I thought about running a very small bead of thickened epoxy at the outside of the joint and sanding it down to fair the joint somewhat, but still have the same concern about exposing the ply. Does anyone have any suggestions? Shame on me for losing patience!
