Fiberglass Seams. 36 hours.

Over the last couple days, I removed all the wires from the hull and all the bulkheads. A trick to remove the wires that might have gotten glued in is to heat the end of the wire with a lighter, this softens the epoxy enough to pull the wire out. Its a neat trick found in the instruction book. Next, I laid the fiberglass strips into the seams and wet-out the fiberglass with straight epoxy using a squegee and a foam brush to work the epoxy through the cloth. The one permanent bulkhead will go back in soon but removing it allowed me to lay the fiberglass strips the full length of the hull instead of in pieces.
