It Looks Like A Boat

The step that we took in boat building this week was to epoxy and filet the frames into place so that we would no longer need screws to hold them into place.  It took multiple mixtures to finish with the frames which means that I had no idea how much epoxy and glue we would need to complete it.  I just decided that I just would be better off to make three small mixtures and take my time,than make one and have to rush. 
Lucky for me, it took just enough time for the epoxy to toughen up so I could get done working. The next step in the process is to put the fiberglass tape in the seams between the hull and sides of the boat, which will also require epoxy. This project has really come a long way, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
