Simply wouldnt even think of using P38 for fixings as it has NO structural strength at all....it is for filling dents....P40 is the proper stuff to use as it will bond properly to GRP...your choice

It's not for fixing but for packing/filling. To understand where I'm at you'd have to go back some pages.
To fill the gap behind the styrene

Filler was quite easy and it's rick solid now.
I needed it to exude out of the washports

Today I've looked ahead at the deck and access within.
It seems to me that the main deck panel is pitifully small, in fact I could not get to the motor mount screws or the couplings. So in conclusion I intend to ignore the plans and extend the panel forward as far as the deck winch. So the towing watsit will be on the access panel.
I've been out most of the day but made some progress. Tomorrow I'm making the foredeck so I can use it to mark the supports round the front as this curves in two directions.


Yes its a laser  <*<



Battery platform fitted.

Attention on deck!  {-)
I'm happy it's as good as I'm going to get so tomorrow it will be satin lacquered. I can then fit the running gear  :-)

Thank you
All being well I should have a big leap forwards by Sunday night.
Unfortunately we can't speed up drying time  :((  impatience gets negative results.
I'm ready to run a fine indelible line around the hull tomorrow and this will be lacquered over in the afternoon.
In later weeks when I come to do the upper hull the line will be painted over.
Not sure which colour to go with yet? The original light blue or the navy blue  {:-{


I'm further miffed with the hull which has been a trial! Nothing port and starboard lines up at 90 degrees to the keel line
Washports and deck level change are well out  >>:-(

I was looking for some self adhesive felt for my stand and came across 3mm thick by 10mm wide on eBay from Germany . Not cheap but fits the bill they do up to 6mm thick too

I don't know if little Afon has ever towed but I know it has oodles of power
Need to tie off on something that won't come off  {-) {-)


I do know that if I had ballasted the stern last Sunday it would likely have won the endurance test at Kirlees  :((  Next year beware !  {-)
I could only drive at 63% of full speed due to bow going down
