Yet more holes in the hull have been made over the course of this past week.
I finally got the side ladders fitted after sometime spent getting the hull level so I could mark the cut-outs vertical (90 degrees to the waterline). The ladders, which were built a while a go, were then super-glued in place and then epoxy’d for good measure. Just a little bit of filler required to give a good finish.
I have also cut out and fitted the clump recess at the stern of the boat, a fairly simple procedure.
