That's all good advice you've offered Paul.

Regarding coating and sanding before finishing: Paul is actually following the directions for the PMD, which is one of a few CLC kits that follows this sequence. After scarfing the hull panels together, builders proceed on to coating virtually ALL the hull components with multiple coats of epoxy. Then the boat gets stitched up and glassed, after which yet more final sealing coats of epoxy are applied inside and out.

If you have the surface area, it's a good system because you can do the majority of the coating and sanding while the components are laid out flat on a work table. If your surface area is limited, it can slow things down a bit as you'll be coating and sanding components in batches.
