port side, outer hull half in foam

So here's my first hull half section. I've spent a little time fareing things down but haven't really spent the time getting it as smooth as I'ld like. Notice: The F-44SC does not have the chamferred gunwhale and in this photo, you can see the filleted join line between the hull side and the deck still covered w/ peel ply. When I'm ready to glass the inside, I will rip the peel ply off, lay down 24 oz. triaxe glass as specified, bag the entire part and infuse the hull half in one shot. I'm not one for wet layups so I'm doing all I can to minimize my exposure to the system III silvertip epoxy resin system that I have chosen to use throughout. Posted by Picasa

yes, it's a good idea to limit exposure to epoxy resins. here's a good website about exposure danger, what things to do to limit your risk and so forth..

hey, what's the deal on joining the deck panel and the hull section? What's the lay-up schedule like? Lots and lots of glass, or what?
