I've got two more strips of glass to put on the outside. Then I'll flip it over and brace it from the inside, paint the inside, hopefully build seats in it if I have the material, and put the end plates on.
Then bottoms up one more time for two more layers of glass covering the entire bottom, sanding, and painting.

This is gonna be a tad tricky. That far end there...
See how the left side is bowed out, and the end doesn't look like it aligns right?
Well, I cut that side of the hull about a half inch long. Simple mistake. I noticed when I stitched the ends, but I was hoping it wouldn't be a big deal. Apparently it is. Well, not really, I can finish it up as is, but I'm not going to. I want this one to be nicer.
So what I'm'a have to do is, break the end apart, which I'll do with a grinder and flap disc, then restitch and re-glass it. Which will be okay, since that end got a sloppy glass job anyway.
What makes it tricky is, there's a lot of tension there, so there's a slight risk that whole end can spring apart. But, I'll be tying them together with some wire, and the entire length where the bottom meets both sides is glassed. Wish me luck!

That does look like it could be a little tricky but you can do it. I'm not going to mention the old Carpenters saying. Measure twice and cut once.  lo lo It will work out.  ;D

But you did mention it!
But I think that was just part of the problem. The day I picked up the wood, it rained hard. The wood was already in the shed, but water came in under the door and some of the wood got wet. Not bad, and I got it off the floor and let it dry. But I think that's affected the flexibility of the wood. Because once I unbound the ends, it got worse, and I'm having a hell of a time trying to work it straight. Everything I try, it goes whacky even worse in another spot. I'll either get it or I won't.

I'll be able to fix it. Salvaged some fence boards yesterday evening, they're going to make fine braces and seats. They'll add a bit of weight to it, but I'll live. Just means I'll have to park closer to the water when I take it out.

Glad your going to be able to fix it. At my age and health condition parking as close as I can is always a good thing.  ~sweat
