Bottom Butt Blocks

A couple days ago I cut out and installed the butt blocks to the inside of the aft bottom planking. You can see them in the photo below, they are located between each batten and give the butt joint more surface area for glue and strength.
The epoxy is really taking a long time to cure lately. Its been 55F during the day and 37F at night. I cant believe how much difference it makes.

Today I epoxied and screwed the aft bottom planking in place for good. I hope to get the overhang sanded down and the planking sanded with 220 grit so I can put a coat of resin over it by weds this week.
