Mist's Deck is Glassed

We're trimming the glass (9 oz S-glass) to fit.

Glass and peel-ply cut to shape.

Spreading the glue. Working the glue into the cloth/underneath foam and removing any air-bubbles. I practiced this many times on samples to assure full penetration of glue.  The entire deck, cabin top, and cockpit floor required a gallon and half of resin. Some of the glue will be removed when I remove the peel-ply.  The boat currently weighs 315 pound.

This next step is to build a jig to support the boat while it is upside-down.  I'm leaving the peel-ply on the deck until I'm finished fairing and priming the hull sides and bottom.
