I use high carbon roll pins turned into screw extractors a lot. It still is a pain, but helps often.

Could you post photos of glassing the hull.
I remember Charlie Jones had a thread that described glassing a hull, but I can not seem to find it.

It won't be a sharpe,as much as I love the looks of them. I told Graham I really like the looks of the Island packets with their high freeboard and their mix of salty and modern look. He told me he had some rough drawings but is pretty much covered up. When he gets far enough along I will start milling the strips. It looks like you used a heap of them.
Didn't really mean to ramble on about my boat thats in the works. Just keep up the good work! Can not wait till you turn her over.

When you glassed the transom did you wrap the edges around onto the sides and bottom of the hull a few inches?
Does the 12 oz wrap over onto the transom?
I am a little unsure of how to make that transition from hull to transom with the glass.
It looks like your glass is being held on by magic.
It is good to have a few tricks up your sleeve.

I have never glassed anything larger than a kayak so I guess I want to have as many of my ducks in a row as possible.

To sweep a floor or span a bay
bit by bit unto the ending
in perseverance always wending
No matter how complex the quest
build each part for just itself
forget the size of the remainder
it will shrink through patient labor
She is a big one but you are working your way.

In retrospect I view it now.
Time spent planning , doing tasks.
When’s the finish, they’d all asked.
Got thru it, I don’t know how.
I finished building her and now.
Gone the times my patience tried.
Now I rest on my backside.
