Peel ply off

I have stripped the peel ply off and learned one lesson. Make sure that at least one edge of the peel ply is loose so you can get it off. One or two pieces were almost permanently bonded to the hull. The finish is not bad, generally smooth and you cannot feel the edge of the glass cloth where it stops. One or two bubbles in the cloth, but nothing that can't be sanded and filled.

I am not going to glass the transoms, there seems little point. I may use the cloth to cover the floor inside. Now a lot of sanding and filling. I also need to build up the skeg and wheel, which is the next and almost last major job.
