Second set of float bulkheads complete

I have finished the last set of float bulkheads and have the foam stringer all ready to go. As a pure photo opportunity I set them all into position (they stand on their own). When I took this picture the temperature was -10 degrees Celsius. I've been waiting for the temperature to warm up a bit but I can't wait much longer. I have two propane heaters (kindly donated by my brother-in-law) that I am now prepared to fire up and hand lay up the inner hull, foam stringer and tape the bulkheads into place.

I really want to reverse the form frames and get the last two float halves finished.

Here is a close up of the access port cut into the aft beam bulkhead. The exposed foam was dug out and the edge was filled with putty to make it robust.

It's a small world. I took this picture yesterday walking the dog. It shows a view of Lake Ontario from Guildwood atop the Scarborough Bluffs. Bluffers Park can be seen in the distance. It will be one definite launch point for my new trailer trimaran.
