You are doing a great job with the hatches and waterproofing. Do you have an ideas how to glass the edges of the exposed bulkheads?

I though about vac bagging any sharp edges to avoid the need to round them off, then build them up again (e.g. chine edges).

I've knocked them off then put them back on.  When I looked at the cost and time to bag everything vs. radiusing, I just couldn't justify it.  I have, on the other hand, glassed internal, non-structural, low wear edges with a strip of glass.  I don't have any problem with running the glass up the sides of a piece and then applying another piece on the edge/face.  I am just careful when I sand to avoid going through the sharp edge.  I wouldn't do this with hull bottom/chine areas, but bulkhead edges I wouldn't hesitate.

I've been hanging out for an update - looking really good!

I like the clean interior edges.

Is that teak on the comings?

re the 302, are you also using 'awlfair' for the deeper depressions?

can the awlfair go straight onto raw FRP or require epoxy primer underneath?
