Petrel Build: 11 Repairing a Split Strip [video]

The first part of this video make look familiar. While releasing the hull from the forms in the last video, I ended up splitting one of the strips. This happens sometimes but could have been avoided if I had glassed the hull first as I did with the microBootleggers I built this spring. On this boat I chose not do glass because it is easier to do the fairing when doing the deck and hull at the same time.
The fix is not a big deal. Squirt some glue in the crack and tape it back together.
