More Roofing

May 1 2016  Hours spent building to date:  2,460

I’m afraid this week’s pictures aren’t going to look a lot different from last week’s since the big job was to put a layer of  okoume marine plywood across the bead board roof panels to add even more strength.

After a lot of prep work Ray helped me hoist on the panels for marking, take them off, then hoist them back on for epoxy gluing and hundreds of screws.  Glassing next.

Since the combined age of the two boatbuilders is 157, this was an exhausting job, but the result was great.
