It'll Float

The bottom plywood has been trimmed, planed, filed and sanded. So the planking is now completed. Screw holes have been filled, sanded, filled, sanded, get the idea. A coat of clear epoxy has been applied to seal the plywood and get ready for fiberglassing the hull. One of the sheets of plywood used for most of the bottom is significantly lighter in color than the others, but since the bottom will get painted, it will not matter.
Now the beauty of the Okoume wood is evident and it looks like a boat! (capsized). I suppose it would float if pressed into service now, but there is a lot more work to do before I can play.
