hull to bridgedeck join detail

Since there are 10 layers of unidirectional glass forming the "flanges" capping each bulkhead, the join areas get 5 layers on the inside and then five layers on the outside.
This outside lamination requires that the foam be removed so that a total of ten layers of glass can form a continuous load path between the bulkhead joins.

cockpit storage

The aft bulkhead now includes a couple of storage spaces. I may eventually install hatch covers here but for now, I think I'll keep them open so I'll have a place to put things that may need to be handy at a moments notice........like maybe a large sawed off mossburg 500 pump action shotgun to discourage modern day pirates......or maybe packs of Marlboro cigarettes to make friends with them......or maybe a copy of "Bennet Carls vest pocket book of jokes for all occasions" to ease any possible conflicts.

What did they do before the days of peel ply?
