Squaring Up

Squaring up the starboard hull.

This photo shows the starboard hull backbone, lined up on a zero mark (the blue tape), and blocked in place along a reference wire stretched along the floor. The lower bulkheads have been “welded” in place using a high-strength filleting compound of epoxy, glass micro-spheres, and colloidal silica (the white substance at the intersection of bulkhead and backbone.)
