This is my first build and it is a learn as you go process. I have the inside of the hull filleted and epoxied. So far, so good, other than a few work sessions extending to the early morning hours. Time flies when you are having fun.
Several problems have given me some questions that need answers from more experienced builders.
I applied the 3" fiberglass to the fillets with a brush and epoxy. One edge of the tape was thicker than the other and after curing this edge was noticeably higher than the other. I used a scraper to bring that edge down and applied the second coat of epoxy. All is good. Is this a normal situation with the glass tape?
Now the the boat is upside down and ready to be filled and sanded prior to glassing. I noticed that the bow and stern have slight twists in them. As I sight down the keel to the bow and stern there is a kink at the points where the bottom and side panels join. I took care to take out the twist in the hull using the sticks at the 1/3 and 2/3 positions, and used a line to bring the ends to line up with the center line. Everything else looks good. Is there any need or any way to straighten these out?
