The speed boat repairs continuing

Making patterns to make the outer panels for the repairs to the bottom of the speed boat 

Having made the pattern for the portside it was a matter of dry fitting this panel before gluing it in position and then make the starboard panel and gluing them both in and then sanding and fairing the bottom before sorting out the transom edge and then priming the whole bottom and building up the paint layers before turning it over and doing the deck repairs and sorting out the engine installation 

The outer panels now glued into position and wedged down where necessary to hold the edges down to marry up with the original bottom.

Once they have cured then the whole bottom will be faired and the bottom epoxied before the hull is painted and turned over to get on with the repairs on the deck and in the cockpit area and the engine reinstalled.
