Dinghy progress

Both internal gunwales now fitted, hull turned over and all stitches cut off. Getting the stitch ends absolutely flush is quite hard. The nylon doesn't really sand down that easily, but they will all be covered in fibreglass eventually, so that should hide them.

The building instructions don't say anything about filling in gaps between panels on the outside, just to round the corners off. But I think I will fill the larger ones round the transoms. I don't like the thought of any voids, even under the fibreglass.

I am hoping to get the dinghy finished before we take Daisy G down to Cornwall for the English RAID.
