Just a little update...

The hull is finally fully prepped for glassing - sanded down glass and excess resin with a stone disc as well as a flappy disc of 80 grit. All I can say is thank goodness - it's taken me about 3.5 days of cutting, sanding and grinding to get the boat to this point.... Not to mention I've burnt out 2 small grinders lol.

Inner keel strips removed as well - these were wood beams with glass over and were saturated with water. I will be reinforcing keel inner with maybe additional layers or glass or with a resin mixture.

Waiting for some materials to arrive before we can start the glassing of the hull. We've ordered 225kg of resin and 45kg roll of chop strand 450gr to start with.
