When taken off the base board, it was all one piece; however, the gunwale line was a bit uneven in plan view. To rectify this, I constructed a
plywood sub deck, with most of it cut away, and glued this in.
In hindsight this was a bad move, and added unnecessary weight. Gunwale strips with some cross members would have been lighter.
The internal hull seams had been glued with Gorilla, Bond It On, which I found out later is only water resistant, not water proof!
of coats of a clear sealer to the inside of the hull will hopefully keep water away. The fin box and mast step were assembled and glued in with epoxy glue, as was all future gluing.
