Masts and more

Optimistic as we were the hull had not quite cured enough to sand until later in the evening so instead we added some epoxy filled holes down the keel that will be drilled out later to accept machine screws to hold the stainless steel keel strip and 1/2" half oval onto the keel. The plan to prime the hull is on for tomorrow. We also glued the mast sections together and which look great and were pretty much as straight as we could make em right off the bat.
To finish off the day I laminated the center thwart strips together which will be ready for planing along with the rudder when I head back to school. Hopefully the stainless steel keel strips and the rivets for the sail track will arrive tomorrow from McMaster.
