The next step was to turn the hull over (a family affair!) and install the bottom. I set the three corner back on supports again, checked the level (which is when I noticed that BHD3 was not quite) and began planing down the chine logs. Planing wood is a very satisfying task; everyone should plane some wood.
I used my trusty belt sander to finish off the chine logs and to level things out. The hull bottom came next and confirm that things were fitting properly. I marked off the frame locations on the bottom so I could be sure to screw into the frames. Bag o' screws? Check. Bag o' pads? Check. Let the screwing begin!
As per plans, I then unscrewed half the panel, spread on the goo, and closed her up.
After a few days of curing, I hit the edges with the planes to trim the bottom to the sides. Mmmm, planing.
